Cirrus Aircraft Transition Training
Tour the great Australian land in safety, comfort and style!
Tired of flying a 40 year-old “spam can?” Looking for a modern, high performance luxury touring aircraft? Look no further!
AAA provides Cirrus Aircraft Transition and CAPS™ Training on a mint condition Cirrus SR20 GTS with Garmin Perspective avionics and autopilot systems, air conditioning and of course, Cirrus Aircraft’s patented CAPS ballistic parachute system – guaranteed to save lives when deployed within operating parameters.
Cirrus Transition training includes type-specific training on:
- Aircraft systems, design features and CAPS;
- Aircraft general handling, circuits and emergency procedures;

AAA Basic Aerobatic Course
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 Advanced Handling Skills course, designed to instill a positive, measured approach to aircraft control using the full aerodynamic envelope, as well as cope with emergency situations including upset recovery.
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
- Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT) incl. stall/spin awareness, rolling upsets and engine failure contingencies
- Fully developed stable, unstable & incipient spins incl. emergency spin recovery technique
- Aileron rolls
- Wing-overs (“lazy eight”)
- Stall turns
- Hi-“G” turns (≥ +2G)
- “Falling Leaf”
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.

Upset Prevention & Recovery Training (UPRT)
Don’t become just another aviation safety statistic! Learn the skills to SURVIVE!
The second-highest cause of accidents in light aircraft is loss-of-control, according to continuing ATSB statistics. The primary cause remains “collision with terrain” – mostly as a result of losing control! The International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), now realising the increasing impact of loss of control in-flight (LOCI) events worldwide, is committed to “...reducing LOCI <as> a global aviation safety priority.“(sic.)
- Uncomfortable in slow speed turning flight?
- Apprehensive near the stall or lose excessive height in recovery?
- Concerned of your chances of survival in an engine failure scenario?
- Unaware of the exact limits of your aircraft’s performance capability?
- Afraid to “cross controls” for fear of a spin?
- Doubtful about your ability to cope with a rolling upset?
- Unable to recognise an impending stall without reference to the ASI?
If the answer is “YES” to any of these questions…
YOU NEED THIS COURSE!
Too many people are killed because of a lack of understanding, recognition or recovery from impending or inadvertent loss-of-control! Don’t let THIS happen to you…
The Academy’s UPRT course is a defensive driving course for pilots! Our course consists of 5 lessons, each designed to increase your flight safety by providing a greater awareness of aircraft capability and confidence in the ability to recognise, avoid and recover if necessary from unexpected adverse aircraft control events or “upsets.”
Our comprehensive UPRT course includes:
- Confident and accurate flight path control and energy management;
- Nose high and nose low upset recovery;
- Advanced stall recognition and recovery;
- Stall / spin awareness and prevention;
- Fully-developed spin recovery; and
- Emergency scenario training.
Skills are learned in a controlled environment with strict performance parameters to maintain safety. Some aerobatic manoeuvres are used to demonstrate the full capability of an aircraft, as well as expose you to the likely adverse effects of incorrect or mishandled recovery techniques. This is backed up with comprehensive pre-flight briefings to gain greater knowledge of HOW and WHY pilots lose control.
Due to the condensed nature of the course, the aerobatic manoeuvres and spinning conducted are not available for endorsement. However, credit will be given toward the successful completion of an AAA Basic Aerobatic Course (BAC) based on competency if desired.
You don’t need to worry about how to fly a new aircraft type or learn local airport procedures! Our instructors will take care of that for you so you can concentrate on learning the techniques which may ultimately save your life!
If you are an Experimental aircraft owner, you may complete the course in YOUR aircraft! (subject to assessment and suitability) Our instructors are experienced in many different types of light aircraft including the popular Vans RV series. If you choose to use your aircraft, please note that some aspects of the course can only be completed in an aircraft with aerobatic capability. However, our instructors are available upon completion of the course to show you how your newly-learned skills apply in your regular aircraft within it’s limitations.
Don’t wait until it’s too late! Learn the skills you need to fly with complete confidence TODAY!
