Aerobatic Trial Lesson

Aerobatic Adventure Flights

Stunt Flying (n): The activity or practice of performing stunts in an aeroplane, such as special turns etc, in the air.

These aerial aerobatic manoeuvres range from gentle chandells and barrel rolls to more challenging and exhilarating loops, cubans and stall turns.

 

Experience the thrill of taking to the skies in a high performance aerobatic aircraft similar to those used in the famous Red Bull Air Race series.

When you arrive you will be briefed by your highly experienced instructor who will explain the basic aircraft controls, safety procedures and the content of the flight. There will then be an opportunity for your family and friends to take pictures as you are strapped into the aircraft ready to go!

Your instructor will talk you through everything as he takes you through a series of breathtaking manoeuvres which are guaranteed to get your pulse racing! You will then have an opportunity to take the controls of the aircraft and maybe try your hand at some basic manoeuvres yourself. All of our aircraft have dual controls.

Once you have flown the aircraft, marvel at the views of beautiful Cambridge and the surrounding countryside. If you don’t fancy the thought of aerobatic flight, it’s not obligatory… We can make the experience as gentle as you like.
