Cessna 172P

I keep flying this with no hope to understand why it keeps turning left in the air then crashing into the ground. I would really like to fly this... i am flying in one of these to get my PPL.

If I had to venture a guess, it sounds like your stalling the aircraft. Watch your air speed.

I don't understand why you can't run a plane full throttle. But i i will slow it down some and see what it does and report back.

I am hearing this noise. A weird noise when it starts to tilt to left.
