Book Now - AEROBATICS

Once airborne you’ll head west towards the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. Over St Mary’s- in the designated training area- you’ll climb to 3500ft-4000ft. You’ll start with some basic manoeuvres- like loops, barrel rolls, wingovers and hammer head turns- to get the feel of things. Your pilot may also treat you to some inverted flight- flying upside down- and to a hesitation roll- a four-point roll where you pause and fly straight ahead at each quarter turn! Your pilot will explain each manoeuvre as you go through it.

Once you’re comfortable with the basics you’ll move onto some combination manoeuvres; things like a Roll Off The Top- a half loop followed by a half roll- and a Split S, the reverse of the Roll off the Top- a half roll followed by a half loop. This may be followed by Cuban Eights and reverse Cuban Eights, which are three-dimensional figure eights. You’ll experience G forces of anywhere between +6G and -3G, alternatively being pushed into your seat or pulled hard against your harness.

After a couple of spins to shake things out your pilot will put all these elements together into an adrenaline inducing sequence of the type used in competition; and while aerobatic manoeuvres are all fun and games today don’t forget they developed out of the serious business of WWI, where fighter pilots like Baron Von Richthofen and other flying aces performed these complicated aerial moves to avoid being shot down in deadly dog fights.

After you’ve had your fill of neck numbing, adrenaline flooding aerial ballet you’ll head back to Bankstown. Landing back at Red Baron HQ you’ll be hard pressed to stop smiling for the rest of the day and we hope it is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life.

Average Duration: 1.5 hours with 30 minutes flight time
