The Fundamentals of Loops, Rolls, and Spins

Learning aerobatics is a lot of fun, but it will also make you a better all-around pilot with a deeper understanding of aerodynamics and aircraft control. This detailed course is a great complement to in-airplane training and explores three essential aerobatic maneuvers in all their varieties: loops, rolls, and spins. Mastering these fundamentals will lead to improved situational awareness, confidence in using flight controls independently, better in-flight decision making, and smart energy management. It’s also an excellent introduction to upset prevention and recovery techniques. 

You’ll go flying in a Super Decathlon over the beautiful beaches of St. Augustine, Florida, for a detailed look at everything from basic loops to hesitation rolls. Your instructor is legendary airshow pilot Patty Wagstaff, who explains every maneuver step-by-step, complete with sophisticated animations and tips for better technique. She also answers frequently asked questions and provides solutions to common errors. You'll learn alternative techniques for how to fly each aerobatic maneuver when in an airplane without an inverted fuel and oil system, so this course is perfect whether you’re flying a high performance showplane or a Cessna Aerobat.

Beautiful HD video shows the pilot's perspective for each maneuver and split-screen segments simultaneously show the flight controls, flight instruments, and views out each window. The course also includes bonus 360-degree videos showing Patty flying each maneuver in the Super D and Extra 300, with controls to pan around the cockpit and view the maneuver from any angle. You’ll feel like you’re riding in the airplane for every maneuver.

Topics include:

  • Basic loop
  • Outside loop
  • Cloverleaf
  • Diamond loop
  • Square loop
  • Octagon loop
  • Aileron roll
  • Slow roll
  • Hesitation roll
  • Barrel roll
  • Spin entry and recovery
  • PARE technique

Your host: Patty Wagstaff

Patty WagstaffYour host for this course hardly requires an introduction. Patty Wagstaff is one of the most famous airshow pilots in history: she’s a six-time member of the US Aerobatic Team, the first woman to win the title of US National Aerobatic champion, and one of the few people to win it three times. What you may not know is that Patty runs a busy flight school in Florida, teaching everyday pilots how to fly with more precision and airshow performers how to compete at the highest levels. You'll also learn from Patty’s colleagues, experienced aerobatic instructor Allan Moore and Instructor and airshow performer Spencer Suderman, as they demonstrate maneuvers in a Super Decathlon and Pitts Special.
