GOFLY AEROBATICS

Become the best pilot you can be!

Do you want to be the best and safest pilot you can be? At GoFly Aviation we want to create the best and safest pilots on the planet. We do this by offering the best instructors, the best aircraft, the best technology and the best training to help you become the best pilot you can be.

After students have completed their Recreational Pilot Certificate and Cross Country training, we recommend students complete either a basic ‘Upset recovery’ training course or a ‘Basic Aerobatic’ course. Not only will completing an aerobatics course make you a better pilot but it is a lot of fun! After completing the course you will be able to hire the Robin aircraft to do more aerobatics flying on your own.

Whether you are flying for fun or a career, aerobatic flying will increase your confidence and make you a better pilot. We offer both part-time and full-time aerobatic courses and can create a course to suit your schedule.

Robin aerobatic trainer

All ‘unusual attitude’ recovery training and the Basic Aerobatic courses will be conducted in the Robin 2160 aerobatic trainer. The Robin is a low-wing tricycle undercarriage aerobatic trainer. We believe low-wing aircraft are the best trainers for aerobatics due to the increased visibility that a low-wing aircraft provides.
