Overview of Flat Hatting
Flat Hatting is a Flight School mission in GTA 5 that will test your control and precision while flying a plane around the harbor. The course is designed to teach you how to gain better control over your turns, and you’ll need to use your rudders to help you make some of the sharper turns.
The first step is to take off and head towards the marker at the end of the runway. The temptation here is to gain altitude, but it is essential to keep your plane low to make it through this mission. The plane can get a little bit squirrely as you go along, so you’ll need to adjust gently with the controllers to steer it carefully.
You’ll notice that you don’t necessarily have to fly directly through all the markers. As long as you can get a wing near enough to the checkpoints, your plane will register it as being in the right direction.
Remember to keep the plane level and use the rudders constantly to keep it going in the right direction. As you head over infrastructure areas, the plane will stabilize itself a bit, but there are also more obstacles to avoid.
The plane will be a bit squirrely as you head over the waves, so make sure to keep your accelerator on the whole time. You want the engine going flat out to make it through the mission in time.
