I'm stuck at the third mission of flight school, I don't know how to turn properly.


Any help, or cheats?

Best game play is with Genuine Generic USB GamePad, as the game was intended.


Anyway: The game should be tutoring you with the buttons to push.

HINTS: Learning to fly

All the missions can be completed.


1. Go to the Los Santos Airport.

2. Jump to the Guard House Roof, the gate will open from the inside if you do not park too close to it.

3. Steal the Shamel (Jet) at the far end.  (Fly it for 13± minutes,  OR the Dodo for 25± minutes to get a "Gate Pass". The game calls it a "Pilot's License" it not, you must still do the "Learning to Fly" later to proceed in the game.

4. Practice flying with either or both of these aircraft.

A. do not use the Rudder for turning (except on the taxing until you have some skill) TURN by banking, this is the key to circling the airfield in the tests.

B. Keep the throttle engage during most of the flight.

C. For the most part let the Plane fly itself.

D. Make flight corrections by just tapping the controls lightly and only when necessary. Let the plane fly itself.

E. By keeping the Throttle engaged the plane will have a tendency to climb naturally.

F. When landing do Not forget to lower the landing gear.

G. Use the "reverse" key to force slowing of  the plane.

H. Letting go of the throttle key will also allow the plane to drop naturally.

3rd is Circle Airstrip right? I see that this is a week old post - you probably have passed this by now. But if you are still stuck:

Vary between clockwise/counterclockwise route - see which is easier for you.

When you near corona, let go of acceleration to slow the plane down.


Turn with acceleration keys, don't turn with q and e - it's a waste of f*cking time. 


You are also able to fly back to corona if you miss as  long as you don't fly too far away (usually if you fly to San Fierro you'll fail)


Using GTA SA Control Center you can adjust game speed (I set it at 50%), time of day and other things that make flying easier.


Try changing graphics settings too, for example turn visual fx to low or medium to see clearer.
