As well as structured courses, we offer one-to-one dual training, where we can tailor the flying to your personal needs, whether that be competition training or just for pure the fun of flying!
Dual aerobatic training is carried out from our home at White Waltham airfield in Berkshire, just west of London near junction 8/9 on the M4 motorway.
We're usually flying, so bookings can be made by dropping us an email on: firstname.lastname@example.org If you would rather talk things through, just send us your number and we'll call you back as soon as we can.
The primary aircraft used for dual training is our Pitts S-2A biplane, arguably the finest and most cost-effective machine ever designed for aerobatic training. We also offer training in the Extra 330LX which is mainly used for advanced aerobatic training. This is the finest two seat aerobatic trainer out there and offers an excellent opportunity to progress further with your skills and the sport.
Training is open to all qualified pilots qualified, with no minimum hours or experience requirements. We can also train in your own aircraft if it has the appropriate approvals.
Our instructors are qualified to train for the Aerobatic Rating as well as all three AOPA Aerobatic Certificate levels: Basic, Standard and Intermediate.
Specific training regimes are also available for pilots wanting to enter British Aerobatics competitions at Club, Sport, Intermediate, Advanced or Unlimited levels.
