Improve your stick and rudder skills with this entertaining course

Ever wondered what it’s like to fly a loop or a roll? Maybe you’ve considered taking an upset recovery course to improve your stick and rudder skills? If so, then this course is for you. Intro to Aerobatics with Patty Wagstaff puts you in the cockpit with an airshow legend to experience flight beyond straight and level.

More than just a list of maneuvers, this course explores the art and sport of high-performance flying. You’ll learn about the history of aerobatics, what the industry looks like today, and how to get started. You'll explore the regulations covering aerobatics, the unique systems found on aerobatic airplanes, and the Aresti System for diagramming aerobatic routines. Then you’ll dive into all the maneuvers, from basics like loops and spins to advanced maneuvers like hammerheads and lomcevaks. Stunning HD video shows Patty demonstrating every maneuver in her Extra 300, and is supplemented by sophisticated animations. Special 360-degree segments allow you to pan around during flight as if you were sitting in the cockpit.

 

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.

Very Basic
This is a very basic video and is more of an advertisement for her school. If you know anything about aerobatics, don't buy it. If I could return it, I would.

Good Intro, but needs more depth
I really want to get into Aerobatics and this was a decent Intro. However, for the price I really wish it went into more details on the maneuvers, tail dragging techniques, and even advanced Aerobatics.

Yes I understand it was an intro so perhaps it could be slightly cheaper around $30 instead of $50.

Not what I expected in this online training course
Bought the Patty Wagstaff Intro to Aerobatics and found there to be more flight school advertising and just history. Was expecting more instruction and less of the other stuff. Was so disappointed in the training video it was returned for a full refund. I appreciated Sporty’s giving me a full refund on this product.

Good Intro to Basic Aerobatics
A good introduction to the basics of aerobatics, including videos that help visualize each maneuver, and of course, with Patty Wagstaff doing the demonstrations, everything is perfect!

Aerobatics with Patty Wagstaff
Liked the content, I was looking for more detailed instruction/details of the control inputs for each maneuver. A video if the rudder and control stick inputs while performing would have made understanding what is required a little easier.
