Cessna 152 Rudder pedal foot placement

Asked by: 2395 views
Student Pilot


I recently started my flying lessons at my local flying school and from my first flight I have always had a problem with my foot placement on the rudder pedals, now I know that you keep your heels on the floor when you start your take off but for some reason I still cant see how I should properly keep my feet on the rudder. Is it possible to somehow provide me with a image representation of how my feet should be placed on the pedal during flight. This simple help would do a world of good to me.

Thanks you

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just ask your flight instructor to show you how your feet should rest on the rudder pedals?
