About Aerobatics

Aerobatic flights from Flights4all

Whether a spectator on the ground or sitting in the cockpit next to an experienced pilot, Aerobatics represents one of the most thrilling of all aerial entertainments.

A trial lesson will give an intimate insight into the scale of the G-forces and disorientation that aerobatic pilots are able to endure, while maintaining complete control of their versatile aircraft. And at the same time executing complex aerial manoeuvres!

IS AEROBATICS A DANGEROUS SPORT?

By its very nature, aerobatics involves risks that are not involved in non-aerobatic flight; but, as with other aviation activities, it is only as safe or dangerous as the pilot makes it. Discipline, planning, common sense, and knowledge are the basic prerequisites to safety.

 

AEROBATIC FIGURES
