A new world of skills, safety and excitement for pilots! Reach a level of proficiency that will allow you to participate in aerobatic competitions.
Whatever the reason, flying aerobatics is a great way to become a better pilot, more aware of what airplanes are capable of, and how to continue to fly them no matter what attitude they may end up in. Regardless what the motivation is for flying aerobatics, there is nothing like the excitement of pulling back on the yoke and executing a perfect loop, or watching the horizon as you perform an aileron roll. The sense of accomplishment is without a doubt one of the greatest you'll have in your aviation career!
This course is taught by Mark Leonard who has been a pilot since 1986. Mark Leonard earned his private pilot license in 1986 and his flight instructing certificate in 2000. Mark received formal aerobatic training in Tennessee at William Kershener Aerobatics in 2003. Mark is currently teaching primary and aerobatic students and has logged over 2500 hours of flight time.
