Here are the details:

When: May 11, 2016
Where: Crosswinds Aviation – Howell.
Cost: $450

This is the first clinic of our Aerobatic series. This clinic includes a 3 hour ground school and two flights in the Super Decathlon scheduled separately with Scott McDonald in N247MA. The following topics will be covered:

  • Tailwheel flying
  • Upset and Recovery
  • Spin Training

The focus of this clinic will be to enhance your piloting skills in specific situations that you could encounter during your normal flying and learning how to instinctively deal with those situations. For example, flight into wake turbulence, or base to final spin and avoidance. You will come out of this clinic with a much better understanding of aircraft control and a significantly higher level of confidence. You will also have a LOT OF FUN!

You can purchase the Upset and Recovery clinic here. If you prefer to pay over the phone, please contact us at 517-552-1101 or email us.

[us_testimonial author=”Dr. Lisa Colletti, CFI/Repairman, Cloud 9 Sport Aviation” company=”Aerobatic Client”]Scott does a GREAT job with the unusual attitude training. I would strongly recommend it to anyone, although I think someone with some baseline flying experience would get more out of something like this vs a new private pilot, although I think anyone would benefit. In any case, I just wanted to let you know that I think Scott is an outstanding instructor and this program that you guys are putting on is excellent.
Looking forward to flying with Scott again.
Best wishes,

More about our Aerobatic Series

Our Aerobatic series of clinics is designed to help our students and clients become highly skilled at precision aircraft control, learn how to avoid potentially dangerous flight situations, and begin the process of learning precision aerobatic maneuvers. A lasting affect of taking these clinics will be better aircraft control in high workload situations, a better understanding of flight aerodynamics, and a high degree of confidence in the cockpit.

For example, most of us have been taught to “keep the ball centered” in a stall otherwise you could enter the dreaded spin. This has effectively scared most of us when performing stalls. In reality, you should be able to fly most aircraft in a full stall by using good rudder control without even looking at the ball. Also, if you don’t do that well and do enter a stall, you should know how to instinctively get out of it with as much confidence as any other maneuver.

The following clinics will ultimately remove the fear of the unknown and teach you how to fly an aircraft safely and confidently.

  • Basic Aerobatics
  • Advanced Aerobatics
