ONE-HALF CUBAN EIGHT
The one-half Cuban Eight starts with the first half of a loop and continues to a point where you
are inverted, nose 30º below the opposite horizon. At this point a half roll is performed to a
wings level attitude in a 45º dive. Commence a recovery to level flight. The maneuver
accomplishes a 180° change in direction. Figure 8-7.
The one-half Cuban Eight commences like a loop.
