Video: Building confidence with aerobatics

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.
