Many different pilots decide to conduct aerobatic training; some are adrenaline junkies, some want to improve and refine their aircraft handling and some just want to add another endorsement to their log book.
The fact of the matter is regardless of who you are an aerobatics endorsement will improve your competency and handling skills—while having fun at the same time!
Aerobatics training is conducted in one of our many Cessna 152 Aerobats.
As a minimum, pilots wanting to gain an Aerobatics Endorsement must have obtained a Recreational Pilot Licence (RPL). Aerobatics is very useful at this stage of training as a tool to build confidence and refine your handling skills.
The syllabus for Aerobatics training with the Royal Aero Club includes six dual hours of flying in the Cessna 152 Aerobat. This includes learning: loops, barrel rolls, stall turns, aileron rolls and spins. In this time you will also conduct a lesson on unusual attitude recoveries and a check flight.
Typically students will follow these six hours with two hours of solo consolidation to refine their skills further.
Students can commence Aerobatics training at anytime. However, you need to be mindful of the requirement to maintain VMC at 3000 feet.
