This course is broken into three phases which follows the Basic, Standard and Intermediate courses of the AOPA aerobatics syllabus. Lessons etc. can be booked as needed on days that suit you subject to availability.
The issue of the EASA AR requires the completion of 5 hours aerobatic instruction, with no proficiency check. In order that standards are seen to be maintained, Almat will continue to complete the course with a flight during which the applicant will be able to demonstrate his or her competency. The competency flight will normally be conducted by an AR instructor other than the instructor who conducted the initial training.
The Basic course consists of a minimum of five hours of aerobatic flying and a minimum of eight
hours theoretical knowledge instruction of which four may be self study.
