Sporty's Launches Updated Patty Wagstaff Aerobatics Course

Ready To Improve Your Stick And Rudder Skills?

Ever wondered what it's like to fly a loop or a roll? Maybe you've considered taking an upset recovery course to improve your stick and rudder skills? If so, Sportys thinks this is THE course for you. Basic Aerobatics with Patty Wagstaff puts you in the cockpit with an airshow legend to experience flight beyond straight and level.

"Building off of our two previous courses with Patty Wagstaff, we've worked hard to create a complete aerobatics course," said Sporty's Academy President Eric Radtke. "This course combines all the elements of the previous courses with a new layout and over an hour of new video to create the ultimate all-in-one aerobatics resource."

More than just a list of maneuvers, this course explores the art and sport of high performance flying-it's the perfect complement to in-airplane training. You'll learn about the history of aerobatics, what the industry looks like today, and how to get started. You'll also learn about legal considerations for flying aerobatics, how to prepare physically, and the systems on different types of aerobatic airplanes.

Then you'll dive into all the maneuvers, from basics like loops and rolls to combination maneuvers like cloverleafs and hammerheads. Stunning HD video shows Patty demonstrating every maneuver and is supplemented by sophisticated animations. In-depth segments describe every maneuver step-by-step, complete with split screen views and real world tips for smoother flying. You'll also get answers to frequently asked questions and solutions to common errors.

"We are so excited to be able to share tips and techniques that will help mentor aerobatic pilots and also show how aerobatic training is so valuable to every pilot to improve their confidence and make them safer pilots," said Patty Wagstaff.

Aerobatics can be flown in a wide variety of airplanes, so this course presents alternative techniques for how to fly each aerobatic maneuver when in an airplane without an inverted fuel and oil system. You'll go flying in an RV, a Super Decathlon, and an Extra to see how each airplane requires a unique approach.

The course also includes bonus 360-degree videos showing each maneuver, with controls to pan around the cockpit and view the maneuver from any angle.

Basic Aerobatics with Patty Wagstaff [#E906A] is available for $149.99 and can be accessed on Sporty's Pilot Training platform. This provides flexibility by allowing pilots to train using the device that works best on any given day: access online in a web browser, in Sporty's Pilot Training app for iOS and Android, on AppleTV or RokuTV. Access to all platforms is included and course progress always stays in sync.
