Aerobatics are an excellent way to improve your handling skills and increase your confidence in your ability to control the aircraft. The training is carried out in our Super Decathlon or one of our Cessna 152 Aerobats. You may add your Part FCL aerobatic rating to your existing PPL or LAPL licence.


The course consists of

A flight competency test must be completed after training. This will be organised for you and taken at Leicester with our AOPA qualified aerobatics instructors.
