Learn to safely fly aerobatics with AFD. It's a lot of fun and it will make you a better pilot.

Basic Aerobatics Training

Aerobatics is about precision, proper energy management and all-attitude awareness. As an aerobatic-trained pilot you will gain a better understanding of airplane aerodynamics and control, especially with relation to Angle of Attack (AoA). Once a pilot has the proper training they will be able to enjoy a lifetime of safe and extremely fun aerobatics.

Completion of an AFD UPRT course is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED before starting aerobatic training.

Aerobatic training in AFD's Super Decathlon: $350 per hour, instructor included.

Aerobatic ground instruction: $90 per hour

CFI Spin Endorsement

Training times: 4 hours of ground and 2 flights

Generally speaking, most CFI spin endorsements consist of little to no ground instruction and one flight with one spin to the left and one spin to the right. We at AFD find this to be highly inadequate. All CFIs need to have a solid understanding of spins and have proper training with spins and recoveries in order to enhance their safety as well as that of their students. Our training far exceeds the FAA standards for the spin training endorsement.

Commercial pilot license required and FAA Fundamentals of Instruction written test is highly encouraged.

Price: $1,090

Formation Training

Formation flight is not something to learn on your own! Safely flying two or more aircraft in close proximity takes some practice and use of tested and approved techniques. With military and FAST trained instructors we can teach you the skills you need to enjoy safe, and fun!, formation flight.

We can provide formation training using our Decathlon and/or your own aircraft. The Decathlon cost is $350 per hour, instructor included. Our instructor in owner supplied aircraft instruction rate is $100 per hour.
