Every seat's a window seat on BruceAir
I’ve created several videos with the Extra 300L's on-board camera system. This page describes some of the videos, which you can find on my YouTube channel, BruceAirFlying, and in one of my SkyDrive folders.
Most of the videos include titles that identify each maneuver before it begins. You’ll enjoy the videos more if you learn a bit about aerobatics.
To see descriptions of specific maneuvers and to find general information about aerobatics, visit the Aerobatics page here at BruceAir.
You’ll also lots of good information on the website of the International Aerobatics Club (IAC).
BruceAir doesn’t do “stunts”—“stunts” and “tricks” are for the movies. Aerobatics (sometimes called “acrobatics”—the terms are essentially interchangeable) is precision flying. Like an element in gymnastics or figure skating, each aerobatic maneuver is carefully planned and executed, and it follows a specific profile (i.e., entry and exit altitude, speed, and path through the sky in three dimensions). Although it may look like it from the ground, aerobatic pilots aren’t just flinging airplanes around the sky.
To learn more about the Extra 300L, see its page here at BruceAir.
These videos show a variety of stalls—normal, from turns, accelerated, and from skids and slips. They help you see the effects of stalls from different configurations and also demonstrate incipient spins.
