Basic Aerobatic Training


Our Basic Aerobatics Course teaches a pilot the essential skills and knowledge required to maneuver and airplane into and out of the aerobatic flight envelope safely. Our cadre of ex-military fighter pilots, test pilots, and aerobatic pilots will take you through each step of the program in a manner that is easy to understand as you dive into topics like energy management, control forces, and aircraft limitations.

This course is designed with a crawl, walk, run progression of events that build pilot confidence with each maneuver and exercise. This is not a stunt flying course as every one of the maneuvers introduced have been proven and taught to prospective military and aerobatic pilots since the Golden Age of aviation.

Maneuvers in the course include:

- A review of stall and spin awareness

- Rolls including aileron, barrel and four-point rolls

- Cuban-eights

- Loops

- Wing overs

- Split-S

- Immelmans
