Video tip: How to fly a Slow Roll with Patty Wagstaff


There are nearly endless opportunities after earning a private pilot certificate to build and advance your stick and rudder skills. Many pilots go on to specialized flight schools to learn new flying techniques, like how to fly a loop or a roll in a high-performance airplane. Our favorite spot for this type of hands-on aerobatics training is at Patty Wagstaff’s flight school in St. Augustine, Florida.

Join Patty in a segment from Sporty’s Basic Aerobatics Course and see how much fun flying inverted can be, as she demonstrates how to fly a slow roll in a Super Decathlon over the beaches of St. Augustine.
