Heading toward the foothills of the Great Dividing Range; the plane climbs to 3500ft to 4000ft into The Designated Training Area; a specially reserved air space for acrobatics and air training. This is where the most fun happens.
Starting with basic manoeuvres; the pilot will introduce the passenger to a range of acrobatics; including barrel rolls, loops and hammer head turns. When flight conditions are perfect, there’s even the chance for some inverted; or upside down flying too.
