Aerobatics Training

Aerobatics is a great way to improve your flying skills. Apart from the outstanding fun you will experience during the course, your knowledge of aircraft handling and co-ordination skills will increase substantially. Its not unlike undertaking an advanced driving course.

The course is conducted in the Citabrias or the PItts S2B. It is recommended that you have at least 15 hours of aeronautical experience before starting an aerobatic training course. Note that this means you do not have to hold a GFPT or PPL to get involved in aerobatics!

If you wish, you may complete the full course of training or complete just selected manoevures, however, all pilots must be competent in recovery from unusual attitudes and spins.

The flying training syllabus for Basic and Intermediate aerobatics flight training is structured to cover the following manoeuvures:

  • Wingovers
  • Unusual Attitude Recovery
  • Loops
  • Aileron Rolls
  • Barrell Rolls
  • Stall Turns
  • Spin Recoveries
  • Rolls off the top
  • Half Cuban Eights
  • Cuban Eights

Who knows when you might encounter conditions that invert your aircraft, or put you into an unusual attitude. Learning some or all of these manoeuvres will strengthen your confidence and build your abilities to deal with the unexpected. And the bonus: you will have a lot of fun in the process!
