  • How can I Start?

    While undergoing training as a student pilot you can request that aerobatics be incorporated as part of your training. A log book endorsement can be inserted into your log book by your instructor who must already be approved to give aerobatic instruction. There are only 5 basic aerobatic manoeuvres. They are loops, rolls, snap rolls(flick rolls), stall turns and spins. These may be individually inserted, but it is a prerequisite that spins be included prior to any other manoeuvres. All other aerobatic manoeuvres are combination of these 5 basic manoeuvres. This will normally take 5-10 hours. Once you join the club you may then receive further dual and solo instruction from club coaches and judges. Once you have obtained your basic aerobatic endorsement you will be restricted to performing manoeuvres you will be restricted to performing manoeuvres above 3000 feet above ground level. Members of the AAC can train for a Low Level Aerobatic Endorsement/ Waiver which permits them to fly their manoeuvres in certain categories down to lower levels. The minimum level is 100 metres above ground level. Contests are held on a regular basis to increase competition experience. A Judge's Home Study Course is available for pilots and aspiring judges. There are now 3 levels of membership available.   AAC National & QLD Chapter Full Membership AAC National Membership entitles you to all rights within the Club but you must maintain your membership of a State Chapter.
