MNV: Maneuvering - Low altitude/aerobatic flight operations
This phase of flight includes the following sub-phases:
- Aerobatics: Any intentional maneuvering that exceeds 30 degrees of pitch attitude or 60 degrees of bank, or both, or abnormal acceleration (usually associated with air shows and military flight, or with related training flights).
- Low Flying: Intentional low-altitude flight not connected with a landing or takeoff, usually in preparation for or during observation work, demonstration, photography work, aerial application, training, sight seeing, ostentatious display, or other similar activity. For rotorcraft, this also includes hovering (not associated with landing or takeoff) and handling external loads.
