What is the time limit in Circle Airstrip?

Recommended Posts

CountdownIIExtinction

I just read a few guides but none of them mentioned a time limit to get 70% RaRusk's guide said for gold it has to be passed under a minute. But I ain't interested in gold. I just want to pass this so that I could proceed with subsequent lessons. Guides say there is plenty of time but I found out there isn't plenty of time. When I flew as calm as possible, and I suck at flying so I had to make a couple of detours to fly back to missed coronas ... eventually I flew through them all, I passed the course but it took me like 5-8 minutes - game didn't award me any medals and I could not proceed with next lessons. So what is the time limit in order to pass? 3 minutes? 2 minutes?

 

 

By the way . is there a way to freeze timer on PS2?

< 75 sec. Bronze

< 67.5 sec Silver

< 60 sec. Gold

 

Keep throttle button/Key engaged.

For turning Do not use the rudder, Use the flaps (Bank).

Be sure the landing gear is UP, and do not forget to put it down when landing.

 

TIP: If you have trouble flying: Do not do the mission yet!

Go back to Los Santos Airport. Jump the Guard House Roof, Steal The Dodo, then the Jet.

Fly around to get practice. When you feel you are ready go back  to the "Learning to Fly".

Note: Flying the Dodo for 30 min., or the Jet for 15 min, or the Maverick (Helo in San Fierro airport) for an hour will caus a message to appear that says, You have a Pilots License. What you have is a GATE PASS to all the airports, you must still finish the "Learning to Fly" mission tests.

Hahah, oh dude. I was stuck on this mission for a couple of months, I think. Toreno phoned me as said: "You try and you fail; you try - and you fail again. But the real failure is when you stop trying". Just keep trying - I can't even describe the amazing feeling when you pass that mission, So satisfying.

So 75 sec is what... 1:.35?

It's 1 minute and 15 seconds.

 

I'm not sure where lil Weasel got the times from, but I swear it's 55 seconds max for the Gold with that test? Correct me if I'm wrong.

Circle the airstrip must be done in 60 seconds or less for gold. The next one "Circle the air strip and land" must be done in 1 min and 20 seconds for gold. I think the question the OP has is what is the maximum amount to time allowed to get a passing score so he can move on. You have an unlimited amount of time to get bronze. So if you failed you have had to have missed one of the markers or didn't fly though it. You post says you took eight minutes means it's impossible for anyone to go around that once. So surely you must have circled more than a couple times? That you won't be able to do and get any kind of passing score.

 

You must circle the airstrip and pass though the rings. You cannot fly past them nor are you able to fly all over the place collecting them. I don't know what flags are set to indicate you are out of bounds nor do I know where the bounds are set.

In all the versions I own, There IS a Time LIMIT.

Reference used is the Page: https://www.gtasanandreas.net/schools/flight.php

The next test is AND LAND so I posted that Time.

70% = 75 sec70% = 75 sec 70% = 75 sec 85% = 67.5 sec 100% = less than 60 sec

Circle Airstrip and Land

 

70% = 95 sec 85% = 87.5 sec 100% = less than 80 sec
