§ 61.93   Solo cross-country flight requirements

(e) Maneuvers and procedures for cross-country flight training in a single-engine airplane. 

A student pilot who is receiving training for cross-country flight in a single-engine airplane must receive and log
flight training in the following maneuvers and procedures:

(1) Use of aeronautical charts for VFR navigation using pilotage and dead reckoning with the aid of a magnetic compass;

(2) Use of aircraft performance charts pertaining to cross-country flight;
(3) Procurement and analysis of aeronautical weather reports and forecasts, including recognition of critical weather
situations and estimating visibility while in flight;
(4) Emergency procedures;
(5) Traffic pattern procedures that include area departure, area arrival, entry into the traffic pattern, and approach;
(6) Procedures and operating practices for collision avoidance, wake turbulence precautions, and windshear avoidance;
(7) Recognition, avoidance, and operational restrictions of hazardous terrain features in the geographical area where the
cross-country flight will be flown;

(8) Procedures for operating the instruments and equipment installed in the aircraft to be flown,
including recognition and use of the proper operational procedures and indications;
(9) Use of radios for VFR navigation and two-way communication,
except that a student pilot seeking a sport pilot certificate must only receive and log flight training on the use of radios
installed in the aircraft to be flown;
(10) Takeoff, approach, and landing procedures, including short-field, soft-field, and crosswind takeoffs, approaches, and landings;
(11) Climbs at best angle and best rate; and
(12) Control and maneuvering solely by reference to flight instruments, including straight and level flight, turns, descents,
climbs, use of radio aids, and ATC directives.
For student pilots seeking a sport pilot certificate, the provisions of this paragraph only apply when receiving training for
cross-country flight in an airplane that has a VHgreater than 87 knots CAS.
