My flight instructors sometimes recommend visual training before taking real flight training. It is a very easy but effective way to improve flight skills. It is such an easy way that even the Japanese student pilots of zero-fighters during World War II were taking it effectively. Just closing my eyes, and imagining that I am flying. That's it! Doing this training sitting in a real airplane seat on the land is more effective. If it is impossible to use a real cockpit, I use this picture, a full scale cockpit of a Cessna 172. In my case, the problem was that I had few successful images and many more failure images. So even in my visual training, I often failed to fly. But now, I have more successful images and I can perform successful visual training. So I hope I can fly successfully in my real flight lessons.
