THere will always be some people for whom the cost of a circuit in a C152 is more more expensive than the cost to somebody else of a circuit in a Seneca. This probably includes most flying instructors given that it's hardly the best paid job in the world.

That said, it's hardly unusual that an instructor has reason to demonstrate and patter a "gold standard" circuit for their student's benefit is it? There is no need to steal a circuit, simply to construct the lesson so that it's done in a particular way from which everybody benefits.
