About
Once airborne you’ll head west towards the foothills of the Great Dividing Range. Over St Mary’s- in the designated training area- you’ll climb to 3500ft-4000ft. You’ll start with some basic manoeuvres- like loops, barrel rolls, wingovers and hammer head turns- to get the feel of things. Your pilot may also treat you to some inverted flight- flying upside down- and to a hesitation roll- a four-point roll where you pause and fly straight ahead at each quarter turn! Your pilot will explain each manoeuvre as you go through it.

What to expect
  • Your aerobatics flight experience gives you a taste of competitive flying. The sport evolved from flight patterns perfected for combat situations by master pilots such as the Red Baron (Manfred von Richthofen) during World War II. Your pilot begins with the basics: tricks such as barrel rolls, loops, wingovers and hammerhead turns. You might also go upside down, do a four-point roll or a hesitation roll. Your pilot will explain each maneuver as you go through it. Next up, your pilot introduces combination maneuvers that consist of loops, rolls and figure eights. The tricks have names such as Roll Off The Top, Split S and Cuban Eights. You'll feel the push and pull of g-forces (gravitiational force) that press you into your seat and harness. Feel your adrenaline surge during the grand finale of your flight when your pilot brings together all of the elements that you have experienced into a final sequence similar to one that would be performed in an aeronautics competition. Expect to fly as high as 4,000 feet (1,220 meters), leaving from Bankstown Airport and flying towards the Great Dividing Range. Before take-off, your experienced pilot provides you with a safety orientation, flight suit and radio headset that allow for two-way communications during your flight. You’ll also be able to take in the sights of Sydney and the coast at the beginning and end of your flight.

What an adrenalin rush
Apr. 2021 • Family
Bought our daughter Sarah a 30th birthday present of a intense dogfight. We live in Perth and Sarah in Sydney. Out 2 sons from Brisbane were coming to stay in a BnB together for Sarah's birthday weekend and decided that they would do the same experience. The Red Baron crew were fantastic and swapped their schedules around to let us go one after the other.
Their professionalism in the way they go through the briefing and safety aspects makes this an excellent experience. Then the flying part is such a thrill. It is something you have to do at least once in your life.
Highly recommend this to anyone looking for an adrenalin rush.

It is an awesome experience, lovely views over western Sydney before the stunts come in to play. Very exciting and great fun, kind of like being on a roller coaster but you have no idea what is going to happen. Lachlan and Jared were very professional and friendly.

Experience you won't forget
Feb. 2020 • Couples
I purchased the aerobatics flight as a present for my Birthday. Due to weather conditions I had to be rescheduled but finally got to do it yesterday. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome and was taken good care of. Once I had my initial induction, I received my flight jumpsuit and pretty much straight away went to the Pitts plane to make me familiar with the aircraft and go over some safety instructions. What can I say about the flight?? What a ride!! Better than any roller coaster!! By far the most adrenaline fuelled experience I have ever had!! First We had around a fifteen minute flight to the area where we could perform the acrobatics. The journey itself was brilliant alone as we got to see the whole city from a view not many people get to experience. When we finally arrived at our target destination the adrenaline well and truly began. Barrell rolls, loop the loops and vertical stalls were a few of the manoeuvres we performed which certainly made my stomach wonder what the hell was going on. It was an amazing experience which I will never forget and I would recommend this to anyone. Without a doubt I will be returning in the future to book myself in again in the Pitts special hot seat.

What a memorabile experience in the sky with the power to fly , turn, roll , to the left and right , loop and then join them all together with you in control of the manoeuvres (and pilot instructor leading the thrill).
Not for the weak stomach or hearts but a must do for all others.
