  • Description

    Aerobatics Sydney is the ultimate roller coaster ride, flying upside down, spiralling towards the earth, looping the loop and barrel rolling across the sky. Your aerobatic flight pilot will introduce you to an aviation adventure that most don't even dare dream about, including a full routine of loops, rolls, stalls and dives.

    Your aircraft for the aerobatics flight is a Pitts Special Biplane, a World War One-style open cockpit aircraft. Your aerobatic flight Sydney is a vigorous, full aerobatics routine involving high g-forces and mind-blowing manoeuvres. In the Pitts Special you'll experience an aerobatics flight you're not likely to forget for a very long time.

    This aerobatics flight is not for the faint hearted, although it can be tamed down if you don’t have iron guts. Due to the high performance, aerobatics-centred nature of the Pitts Special, you won't be asked to take control at any stage, just to sit back and enjoy a wild aerobatics ride! The aerobatics flight is 30 minutes, but the total adventure is a little over an hour in duration.

    I would highly recommend this flight to every one. Joel (pilot) was constantly checking how I was doing and explaining what was happening. When I asked to do the hammer head for the 4th time, he did it with no hesitation. I cant explain how exhilirating and amazing this experience was but it will be with me for a long time. Thank you blue skies for one of the best experiences I have had.

    Amazing some of those tricks are unreal, the snap turn is the best though, super exciting and if you can handle it don?t hold on.

    The aerobatics flight was truly an amazing experience! The thrill you get from a rollercoaster ride multiplied by a thousand! There is nothing quite like seeing the world while your hanging upside down in the open-cock pit! I've never felt such an adrenalin rush!! My pilot was great - kept me informed throughout the whole experience which was really beneficial. Would definately recommend this to others!

    That was a truly brilliant day. Perfect weather, great pilot, awesome experience!! T Dames This was a great birthday treat - one to talk about for a long time to come. Joel and the team could not have been better and the aircraft was just lovely. Immaculate inside and out which gives great confidence in the whole operation.

    Blue skies Nic From the moment I walked through the Red Baron doors, I was welcomed and made to feel comfortable. Their organisation was flawless as well as their professionalism and courtesy. That aside, the flying was incredible. Had the time of my life. Joel is an awesome pilot and made the whole experience something I will never forget. Unreal - go flying with these guys. Lot and lots and lost of fun!!!

    I'm still excited when I think about Sunday morning. I don't think I ever wanted to come back to terra firma - I could have stayed with those clouds for much, much longer. I love the sky! I love aerobatics! And finally I’ve flown in a Pitts Special. My flight in the Pitts Special with you was nothing short of exhilarating. From the moment we took off I was smiling with the broadest grin. Then when we started the aerobatics: inverted flight, loops, barrel rolls, spins, tail slides (one of my favourites!), hammerheads and other manoeuvres that I cannot even remember the names of - I was just having a ball. I couldn’t stop laughing, clapping and was being totally enthralled. But the best was yet to come!! Those powder puff clouds that had started to form around the flight training area. It WAS like our own private Red Bull Air Race when you started to race around these and perform aerobatics around them. When I think about it now I get goose bumps - it was such a beautiful visual sensation and the cloud changes your whole perception of relativity and speed. This is one of the memorable experiences I have ever had (and I've had some adventures!!) and I would say the best aerobatic experience ever thanks to those clouds and to the pilot who showed me just how much fun they are. Thanks!
