required. It is the student's responsibility to ensure both the gear and flaps are safely retracted.
126.96.36.199. STUDENT "Aircraft clean at 150 kts." (Report the airspeed at which the gear and flaps

require the student's attention, it is important to recall the general hierarchy of prioritization -
aviate, navigate, communicate, checklists.
