    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Upon your arrival at the hanger, you will meet your pilot and ground staff for the day and be shown around the aircraft and given brief safety instructions and there is plenty of time for photos. You'll be given flying instruction on this Pitts Special aircraft - brand new and has only just arrived from the USA. This fantastic aerobatic machine is the only one of its kind in the Sydney Basin. It is designed for speed, manoeuvrability and full-on aerobatics!

    We'll get you strapped and secured into your seat. For the duration of your flight you'll be sitting at the front of the aircraft and your pilot will be sitting behind you. When all is ready and the engine started, you will be up and away on your flight.

    You have communication with your pilot for the duration of the flight through your headset and he will make the journey as enjoyable as possible for you, explaining the manoeuvres and being as adventurous with loop the loops and rolls as you wish. You'll even have the chance to take the controls and one point and discover your own talents.

    The Pitts Special has a climb speed of 85 knots at a rate of over 2000 ft per minute and a maximum speed of 184 knots - which is 3 times faster than the Tiger Moth. The thrill of aerobatics is the ultimate adrenalin rush and each manoeuvre will leave you feeling completely exhilarated.
