This first challenge is a nice easy way to get your bearings. Jackson will talk you through every part so listen to him for cues and if you follow his directions to the letter, you will get Gold for most challenges.
Start by picking up some nice speed and once you’re going fast enough, try easing up into the air. If you easily get up you can then start ascending to the yellow ring checkpoint in the distance. Make sure to retract the landing gear as soon as you are airborne or it will slow your speed and you may miss the Gold time. Fly through the next checkpoint by adjusting height position to complete the challenge.
