Safety and Emergency Procedures
Before our first flight we cover safety topics in the event of an emergency: emergency situation decision making, emergency egress, reserve parachute handling and use.
Section 1- Unusual Attitude Recovery
You will slowly and safely open up your flight envelope to include recovery from flight attitudes including positive G and negative G, vertical up, vertical down, as well as inverted flight and advanced stall and spins. You will focus on early detection and prompt authoritative recovery. This is foundation on which you will safely learn basic aerobatic maneuvers.
