AOA Aerobatics Training

8KCAB Super Decathlon

Experience the total freedom and excitement of aerobatic flight training in Academy of Aviation's AMERICAN CHAMPION AIRCRAFT 8KCAB SUPER DECATHLON. Improve your pilot skills in precision and coordination. Become a safer pilot and strengthen your self confidence.

CFIs have long debated whether aerobatics have any role in basic training. I have been in on many such discussions; so, being a fairly typical weekend pilot with not enough hours over too many years, I decided to find out for myself. Would pulling through loops and flying with the blue side down really improve the skills on which I depend when I take the family to Key West for the weekend? Would I gain confidence? Would my understanding of aerodynamics improve? Would my breakfast stay where I put it?
