Like to try competition aerobatics and find out whether it’s a sport for you? British Aerobatics is repeating its successful Get Into Aeros weekend at Sleap Airfield on 23-24 May 2020.
No previous aerobatic experience is required but you do need to have a PPL and be under 30. If you’re over 30, all is not lost! There’s another event at Little Gransden on 30 May.
The most exciting part of the event is when participants undertake two flights with an instructor: one training flight away from the airfield, where you will learn the club sequence before returning to the competition ‘box’ to fly it, and a second flight that will take you straight into the box to fly the sequence a second time. Our judges will provide critique for both flights.
Multiple National Aerobatic Champion and Red Bull Air Race World Champion Nigel Lamb will be in attendance at the event, and he will chat to all to share his considerable experience in the sport and answer any questions you might have.
Free camping will be available on the airfield, should you wish to do so. The airfield café will be serving food throughout the event, although this is not included in the price of £199.
Closing date for applications is coming up: 16 February 2020.
