Experience the feeling of a ‘Barrel Roll’ or a ‘Loop the Loop’ during your flight at an experienced aviation centre. You will be a part of a spectacular display of grace and elegance, whilst viewing the world from a different angle and defying gravity. Sit back and enjoy the exhilaration as you encounter well-known aerobatic manoeuvres such as loops, rolls, stall turns, chandelles and steep turns.
You will fly at speeds of over 100mph, thousands of feet in the air and test your nerves in this adventurous, white knuckle ride.
Your experience starts with the qualified instructor giving you a pre-flight briefing which will enable you to understand how the aircraft is capable of aerobatic flight. Once in the air, your instructor will accelerate the aircraft to over 100mph before starting a sequence of aerobatic manoeuvres, which may include loops, rolls, and wingovers. Due to the nature of this experience it is unlikely you will be able to take the controls, so just sit back and enjoy the ride. This experience is not for the faint hearted and is definitely not recommended with a hangover.
Please note that the manoeuvres described above are only an example of what you may experience and can differ depending on the location.

brilliant,brilliant,brilliant what more is there to say !!!
Didn't know what to expect. But exceeded my ideas! Really was a great experience and Simon made it great. Obviously very experienced but also very informative as well. Thanks for a great day
My wife wanted to book me something extra special for my 30th birthday, but having been told so many horror stories about Track Days, we decided upon the Aerobatic Flight.
Location wise it was perfect, Burton upon Trent, so not too far from our Staffordshire home.
After three failed attempts to book and take the flight (darn UK weather!) it was fourth time lucky. The flight was executed by Dave, who was lovely and answered any questions I had about the plane and surrounding areas during take off. Then the world started spinning!
The following 25-30 mins were exceptional, and despite pulling 3g's throughout, i could not help but admire Dave's piloting skills. We completed loop the loops, barrel rolls, various spins and taking the plane vertical until it stalled. Pure exhilaration!
The only down side was that i wished i had been given the chance to take a few shots with the plane beforehand (otherwise i would have given this 5 stars).
In short - a really enjoyable experience for Thrill Seekers and good value for money too!
