These skills are an essential part of aerobatic flying which also improve your general flying ability and confidence.

As each manoeuvre is approved individually and additional practice may be required prior to the standard competencies being reached. This course is made up for 5 lessons and each manoeuvre has a pre-flight brief.

At the conclusion of this course pilots will be recommended for a CASR Part 61 – 1500ft Aerobatic Flight Activity Endorsement.

The course comprises of 6 lesson + pre-flight briefings. Each manoeuvre is approved individually and additional practice may be required to achieve the standard competencies. Once you have each manoeuvre down pat, we’ll put these into an advanced aero sequence which builds upon the BAC & IAC manoeuvres. The AAC is conducted using the Alpha 160A and an upgrade to the Extra 300 is available following this course.

  • Roll off the top.

  • Split S.
  • Half reverse & half cuban.

Once you've completed our Advanced Aerobatics Course you can train in the Extra 300.

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.
