Once airborn you’ll head west towards the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, climbing to 3500ft - 4000ft. You’ll start with some basic manoeuvres - like loops, barrel rolls, wingovers and hammer head turns. Your pilot may also treat you to an inverted flight - flying upside down and a hesitation roll - a four-point roll where you pause and fly straight ahead at each quarter turn! Your pilot will explain each manoeuvre as you go through it.
Once you’re comfortable with the basics you’ll move onto some combination manoeuvres such as a Roll Off The Top - a half loop followed by a half roll; a Split S; and the reverse of the Roll off the Top - a half roll followed by a half loop. This may be followed by Cuban Eights and reverse Cuban Eights, which are three-dimensional figure eights.
You’ll experience G forces of anywhere between +6G and -3G, alternatively being pushed into your seat or pulled hard against your harness.
Your pilot will then put all these elements together into an adrenaline inducing sequence of the type used in competition before returning to land.
