It's Time to Begin Your Aerobatics Journey

…there is nothing more challenging or exhilarating in aviation than aerobatics

Taking an aeroplane to the very limits of its flight envelope is not something that most pilots are use to doing on a daily basis and that is why we believe all pilots can benefit from some fun yet challenging aerobatics training.

Feeling the controls all the way against the stop while your in an unusual attitude is, for the uninitiated very unsettling, but super addictive once you understand the hows and whys of basic aerobatics.

As you would already know, aerobatics is not part of basic pilot training however we believe that all pilots can benefit from a little practice and understanding of loops, rolls, stalls and stringing these important yet simple manoeuvres together.

  • Build more confidence in handling and decision making
  • Instantly recognising unusual attitudes will increases your reaction time
  • Aerobatics will reinvigorate your passion for aviation

Whether you have been flying for years of you have just achieved your unrestricted license you’re going to learn something from your basic aerobatics rating and if you’re up for some more advanced training then we have the pilots, planes and skills to accommodate your every need. Take a look around our site here and if you have any questions at all make sure you reach out and if your keen to get started lets get you booked in.

Licence Training

Learn the art of formation flying and hone your skills with the formation experts who teach what they do! Our pilots are often seen over Sydney performing aerobatic formation displays or flying in formation at major events. We have even been featured on television and in the media. When it comes to flying in formation and can teach you how to formation fly like a real military pilot.

Formation Flying

Tailwheel undercarriage or conventional undercarriage is a design feature which allows pilots to fly more advanced and manoeuvrable aircraft such as the Super Decathlon, Pitts Special and the Extra. This design feature requires pilots to be more attentive to handling the aircraft during take off and landing as well as taxiing. It is an excellent way to further increase your skills and confidence.

Tail Wheel Endorsement

The Constant Speed Unit (CSU) is the design feature that more powerful and efficient aircraft use in order to better utilise the power produced by the engine. The unit allows the propeller blade to change its angle of attack to take a more effective stroke through the air and to utilise the torque of the engine more efficiently.
