The expert instructor will demonstrate how to perform a range of spectacular aerobatics from loops to barrell rolls before handing over the controls to you!

Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the Goodwood centre on your weekend flight you will be provided with refreshments whilst fitting your Top Gun style flying suit. You will then receive a full pre-flight briefing which includes all safety and parachute procedures before a basic lesson on how to perform aerobatic stunts! An ex-military instructor is on hand for one- to-one discussion's to explain how extreme your experience is going to be. Now for the all important flight! Once in the skies your instructor will go through the aerobatic manoeuvres you are going to try, including the techniques required to execute these correctly. Now its your turn to take the controls and attempt these incredible stunts! Feel the G-force as you try loop the loops, barrel rolls and many more.
