Learn to confidently handle your airplane during in-flight emergencies

Following a structured syllabus, pilot's develop the ability to keep a cool head while applying techniques learned in the school's aerobatic training aircraft to resolve the situation at hand. "We literally turn pilots' upside-down in real airplanes in order to give them the confidence to fix the problem without the panic."
