Your instructor will strap you securely into the Robin 2160 aerobatic training aircraft and fasten your headphones. Your instructor will proceed to give you a briefing on the aircraft’s controls and operations. You will be able to hear all the calls to air traffic control and speak to your pilot through the intercom.
As this is an instructional flight the pilot will explain what is happening each step of the way. Once airborne he will explain the basic mechanics of flight and show you how the aircraft behaves at different altitudes. Once you are confident with this information it will be your turn to take control of the aircraft. Your instructor will hand over control of the plane to you and guide you through level flight.
But this flight isn’t just about flying the plane straight and level or doing basic turns.... the adventure has just started. You’ll also get the chance to do complicated and exciting manoeuvres like loops and rolls.
By the end of the flight you’ll be confident enough to do these manoeuvres without the instructor even touching the controls. You may even get the chance to fly the plane back to Bankstown Airport where your instructor will talk you through the approach and landing.
