NVFR Rating Course
Expand your horizons and learn to fly in the night sky!
Learning to fly at night is an important skill for any prospective Commercial pilot. It’s also useful for Private pilots who don’t want to be unnecessarily constrained by daylight hours!
The AAA NVFR course is a comprehensive course which contains:
- Instrument flight consolidation (full- and limited-panel)
- Night take-offs and landings
- Night visual navigation including supplemental radio navigation aids and GPS use
The instrument flight hours gained on the course can be counted toward the minimum of 10 required for the issue of a Commercial Pilot Licence, making this course an ideal stepping stone between PPL and CPL training.

Spin Endorsement Training
Giving new instructors the skills to teach with confidence.
The Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) Grade Three Flight Instructor Rating syllabus requires trainee instructors to be endorsed to conduct fully developed spins to ensure that flight instructor trainees are proficient at spin recovery techniques before teaching incipient spinning. (CASR Table 61.1235 Item 3A)
Unfortunately for most flight training organisations, finding a training aircraft with fully-developed spin recovery capability, as well as a qualified instructor experienced in such instruction, can be costly, time-consuming and not have the desired outcome! This can lead to a serious gap in confidence and awareness of stall / spin recovery for new instructors.
The Academy’s Robin 2160i is the ideal spin training aircraft. With completely predictable spin characteristics, it is similar in performance to most trainee instructor’s initial training aircraft, such as the Piper PA28 series. This is a far cry from under-powered Cessna 152 Aerobats that take an eternity to climb to height (wasting time and money), and “fire-breathing monsters” like the Pitts Special, which tend to be more intimidating than helpful in providing positive learning outcomes with inexperienced pilots.
Even if you’re a Recreational, Private or Commercial pilot, this brief course is a great asset! Previously optional under the CASA Commercial Pilot Licence syllabus, the new Part 61 Manual of Standards have now removed this requirement from CPL training completely! Under the expert guidance of experienced instructors, you will be exposed you to stall / spin recognition and emergency recovery techniques and debunk the myths and fears of the “dreaded tailspin!”
Why waste time and money? Refer your instructor trainees to the aerobatic and spin recovery experts at the Australian Aerobatic Academy! We are the preferred supplier of flight instructor spin training to a number of organisations who conduct flight instructor rating training, and can tailor a course to suit your organisation’s requirements.

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.
