You most likely may have as many questions for us as we do for you, like, are you a licenced pilot? Have you an aerobatic endorsement? Are you a student pilot? Are you thinking about getting your pilots licence, or maybe enquiring on our social membership, or judging is your interest?
If so, get in touch with us, go to our contact page and either email or phone us. There is an affiliation drop down on that page with a list of flying schools which can help with your initial aerobatic endorsement, 5 -10 hours depending on your experience and ability, once obtained, we can further assist you with training and coaching. Guidance for low level endorsements as you progress through the categories as well as judging courses for pilots and non – pilots.
