ACROBATICS COURSE- ADVANCED PILOTAGE

INITIATION OR PERFECTION OF ACROBATIC MANOEUVRES!

WHO IS IT FOR?

Pilots who would like to try out acrobatics for the first time or who want to perfect their technique.

REQUIREMENTS

If you want to do this course you must already master ALL the manoeuvres of the ADVANCED SIV course.
If you don’t master all the required techniques we will offer you the possibility of taking an ADVANCED SIV course.

DURATION

The course normally has a duration of 8 flights and 5 days, however, they can vary from 4 to 5 according to the meteorology and the number of learners.

GOALS

  • Improve piloting skills
  • Initiation to acro flying
  • Control elemental acro manoeuvres
  • Safety and acro flying
  • ACRO
  • 660
    per
  • Practical and theoretical training
  • Video analisys
  • 8 flights
  • Autoinflatable lifejacket
  • Waterproof radio and earphones
  • Medical and liability insurance

PROGRAMACRO TRAINING

First day:
17h:Presentation of the course, inspection of the gear, first briefing
Following days:
9h: Start flying at Sant Antoni reservoir
Afternoon: Analysis of flight videos, theory and briefing for the next day
In normal conditions we will perform 8 flights across 3-4 days. That means that the course will usually last 4-5 days.

Inspection of the equipment

The first thing that we will do will be to check that the reserve parachute is well connected and we will perform a basic inspection of the harness. We will do a thorough equipment check in order to detect any failings (often this is the main and most serious problem) such as parachutes that have expired or are the wrong size, etc... Serious mistakes in installation of the equipment are very frequent and they gravely compromise the pilot’s safety.

Flight briefings

We will give details on every manoeuvre that we will perform:

  • Sensations
  • Origin: Incidence? Pilotage error? Utility manoeuvre?
  • Resolution
  • Prevention: Active pilotage
  • Possible consequences
  • Simulation: How we’ll induce the incidence

Flight over water

The part of the course that everyone looks forward to!
In the basic course we will perform 8 flights in 3 or 4 days, that means 2 or 3 flights per day, not more. The brain needs time to process the information so it’s no use to do too many flights in one day.
On the other hand, in each flight we will have an effective altitude of 600 to 1,000 m, which is practically the double of Annecy, for example.

Theory classes

In the afternoons, theory:

Post-flight analysis of the videos: we will analyze the flight videos in order to strengthen good choices and correct errors. Debriefing.

Theory: Aerodynamics, new technologies, reserve parachutes, pendular movements, homologation, etc...

ACROBATICS COURSE PROGRAM

Acrobatics basics can be summarized in 3 manoeuvres: COLLAPSE, WING OVER and SAT. According to the pilot's level, we will work on each one of these manoeuvres helping the pilot to develop and connect manoeuvres. Each pilot learns differently but it is impossible for an absolute beginner to master all the manoeuvres in a single course.

FULL STALL: It is very important for safety in acrobatics. You must be able to perform this manoeuvre “with eyes closed” before you start a course in acrobatics. This manoeuvre is the base for executing: BACK FLYING, PARACHUTAL STALL, DYNAMIC STALL, HELICOPTER

WING OVER: The second basic manoeuvre is pretty complicated and if we take it to the extreme it will allow us to do looping. People often attempt this manoeuvre at low altitude undervaluing its difficulty. Based on this manoeuvre we will learn: WING OVERS, ASSYMETRICAL WING OVER, LOOPING

SAT: This manoeuvre was invented by Raúl Rodríguez and it takes the name of his team “Safety Acro Team”. It was a great leap in the evolution of acrobatics because in combination with other manoeuvres it makes it possible to execute incredible acrobatic figures.
