You can experience the adrenalin rush of unlimited aerobatics in the EXTRA stunt plane. This two seat, state of the art aircraft is fully certified to 10G!
Get a taste of the Red Bull Air Race right here in Sydney and experience neck numbing aerobatics at their most extreme in the Red Baron Extra Aircraft Stunt Plane . From the same stable as the Extra 300, a featured aircraft in the Red Bull Air Race (Nicholas Ivanov won the Perth 2007 leg in his Extra 300SR), the Extra Aircraft Stunt Plane has a top speed of 410 km/h, a climb rate of 2000 feet per minute and a staggering roll rate of 360 degrees per second. It is rated to a neck numbing positive 8 G’s and negative 8 G’s!
Upon your arrival at Red Baron HQ, Bankstown, you will climb into a flight-suit and prepare to board. Your pilot will strap you securely into the cockpit and fasten your headphones and flight helmet. There will be plenty of time for your family and friends to take photographs of you as you prepare for your flight. When you are secure, your pilot will prepare the plane for take off. You’ll be able to hear all the calls to air traffic control and speak to your pilot through the intercom.
Once airborne you’ll head west towards the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. Over St Mary’s- in the designated training area- you’ll climb to 3500ft-4000ft. You’ll start with some basic manoeuvres- like loops, barrel rolls, wingovers and hammer head turns- to get the feel of things. Your pilot may also treat you to some inverted flight- flying upside down. Your pilot will explain each manoeuvre as you go through it.
Once you’re comfortable with the basics – hold on tight as the pilot shows you what this aircraft’s really capable of. You’ll experience a sequence of manoeuvres that will test your, and the aircrafts limits.
This flight is not for the faint hearted! You’ll experience G forces of anywhere between +8G and -4G, alternatively being pushed into your seat or pulled hard against your harness. The large bubble canopy will give you unrivaled, uninterrupted views of the the surrounding landscape.
The Red Baron Extra Aircraft Stunt Plane is made of the latest in carbon fibre composite technology combined with a proven steel airframe construction. This allows the Extra to withstand the immense forces exerted upon it during flight while maintaining it’s relatively light weight.
This is the most extreme aerobatic experience around. After you’ve had your fill of neck numbing, adrenaline flooding aerial ballet you’ll head back to Bankstown. Landing back at Red Baron HQ you’ll be hard pressed to stop smiling for the rest of the day and we trust it is an experience you will fondly remember for the rest of your life.
Excellent, the team at Red Baron were great and very professional.
Great pilot, clear instructions and talked me through everything I need to know. Genuine concern for passenger safety and comfort. Train station pickup was a nice bonus...AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! :)))
The flight was for my wife's birthday and a total surprise until the morning of the flight which was her birthday, up until we arrived at the airport. She loved the flight,pilot was fantastic -see the video-awesome. Recommended for the adrenaline seeker who want to join the 8 G Club.
Best flight ever - I will never fly in a A380 again unless I have too.
The Red Bull stunt plane was awesome. Pilot Joel was fantastic and I never knew Sydney looked so good upside down. Would recommend this flight to anyone...a great day!!
Fantastic experience and what a rush! Joel was experienced, friendly and did a great job explaining the manouvres. The best part was his reading of me and what I was after and the extra manouvres at the end including some formation flying and our inverted "Top Gun" style wave to the Red Bardon plane was a particular highlight. Thanks Joel and Red Baron! P.S. Amir was very friendly and helpful whilst on the ground, great customer service! P.P.S. If the lady in the Red Baron plane from 12pm Saturday 29 November sends in the photos of us inverted above her please send them through to my email!
Great time thanks guys
An incredible experience, now its time to get a pilots licence!
Joel and Skye were extremely helpful in organising the flight. I would highly recommend this activity to someone else.
