For students who have already had aerobatic training, this course will be geared toward moving them into new maneuvers and if applicable, help them move into a new category of competition aerobatics (for e.g., sportsman to intermediate level). At the end of the ten hour course, the student will be proficient in Sportsman level aerobatics.

While each course is customized for the individual, we usually start with deep stalls which give the student a feel for the airplane, then cross controlled stalls, spins left and right, spin avoidance and recovery; unusual attitudes and recovery; sportsman level aerobatics: aileron rolls, slow rolls, loops, half Cuban eights, and half reverse Cuban eights; the Immelman, Hammerhead and Humpty Bump; then into more advanced maneuvers such as vertical rolls; we then link maneuvers together into sequences which is beneficial to gain a better understanding of energy management.

Ten hours of flight training • Ten hours of ground discussion • Use of Parachute and Bose Headset POH for the Super Decathlon (in PDF format) • POH for the Extra 300L (in PDF format)
