AAA Basic Aerobatic Course

Aerobatics and spinning endorsements

Learn the art of aerial precision, freedom & control!

Aerobatics is FUN! It is the only way to truly understand and enjoy the pure three dimensional freedom of controlled flight, and you don’t have to be the next “Top Gun” to do it! The ability to perform simple loops and rolls is a skill that provides a level of flying confidence and exhilaration that continues to elude “mainstream” flight training today.

The Academy’s Basic Aerobatic Course is the most comprehensive combined basic aerobatic, upset recovery and advanced flight handling skills course available in Australia.

Conducted in the Robin 2160i, the course is designed to teach licensed pilots with no previous aerobatic experience the skills and knowledge required to conduct safe, proficient aerobatic flight manoeuvres. Not only will you learn how to perform individual manoeuvres, you will learn how to fly them in sequence as well as recognise and recover from mishandled manoeuvres in safety, and have fun doing so!

The course also incorporates all components of the Academy’s Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT) course, designed to instill a positive, measured approach to aircraft control using the full aerodynamic envelope, as well as cope with emergency situations.

Upon graduation, you will qualify for CASA Part 61 Aerobatics and Spinning Flight Activity Endorsements, be able to take up passengers in the Robin, fly basic aerobatics and spins, and be confident in your ability to do so safely!

The AAA Basic Aerobatic Course includes:

  • CASA Part 61 Aerobatics & Spinning Flight Activity Endorsements
  • Robin 2160i  / Alpha 160A type conversion
  • Precision flight path & approach control techniques
  • Advanced stall recognition and recovery

  • Fully developed stable, unstable & incipient spins incl. emergency spin recovery technique

Already have some aerobatic experience? If you already have some experience in aerobatics, and you are looking to expand your skills, then please look at our advanced aerobatics courses. These “post-graduate” courses will give you the skills and knowledge to progress from a “basic aerobatic endorsement” to as far you want to take your aerobatic development – all the way to Unlimited world level competition if you so desire!

The Academy can also conduct aerobatics training for owners of aerobatic-capable Experimental category aircraft subject to assessment and suitability – please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Need an Aeroplane Flight Review or thinking of converting your RA-Aus certificate to a CASA RPL? This course is a fantastic way to expand your skills and meet the relevant CASA requirements! Contact us for more details.
