Feature Article: Eights

Eights combine the skills acquired from doing left and right turns about a point and S-turns. First find a + with one leg giving a direct downwind entry. Proceed with a series of left and right circles in which the downwind turns take you through the intersection. Your primary effort will be to keep the circles the same size and the altitude constant. Make your own diagram.
