Video: Building confidence with aerobatics

0

Aerobatics might bring to mind 8G turns and flat spins, but most aerobatic flying is much smoother and more fun than that. In this video, you’ll ride along with a new student pilot as she experiences loops and rolls in an RV, and even flies some herself. As she discovers, aerobatic flying doesn’t have to be scary – it can actually build confidence and skills that make you a better pilot when you’re straight and level.

Video from AOPA.
