Large scale computer-assisted instruction systems generally impose severe constraints upon the demands that individual users may make. Nevertheless, it is possible to overcome these problems and a program is described which teaches students how to fly a specific maneuver through real-time simulation of the flight of a student-controlled "airplane". This is achieved in spite of the fact that the student is "flying" his "plane" through the use of a manually controlled analog input device. Both computational and educational implications are discussed.
