Default "RV Aerobatics" forum presentation at AirVenture








IT'S AIR CONDITIONED! And if that doesn't attract you, stick around and we'll discuss everything from flying aerobatics for air shows, competition or just for fun. How to equip your RV for aerobatics, maneuver basics, safety and more.
Join me at the newly renovated IAC Pavilion, just off the NE corner of Boeing Square on Wednesday, 10:00 AM.

Only 80 seats in the room so arrive early and browse the displays at the Pavilion while you wait.

Cool You don?t need to be a fighter pilot



Of course fighter pilots have been trained in all three dimensions and would be naturals for going into aerobatic competition in their RVs or any aerobatic capable aircraft. However, I?d say the majority of the competitors at all levels were not fighter pilots. I went through a 10-hour aerobatic course almost 30 years ago and only had about 200 hours total at the time. Be forewarned that starting aerobatics can be very addictive where you?re constantly trying to improve the maneuvers and scores. You?ll also be welcomed in a friendly family of the best pilots in the world. Ron is the best person to give the seminar on RV aerobatics at Oshkosh. Not only does he really fly well and has shown what the RVs can do, but he?s also an IAC judge, and hopefully will be elected this year on the IAC Board of Directors. Only just a few years ago, there were only one or two RVs that competed in the US in a year. We now have seen about 8 this year. I believe the RVs will dominate the Primary and Sportsman categories in the coming years.

This presentation is scheduled at the same time as the Van's RV Maintenance presentation by Dick himself. How did that happen?

Van's presentation is scheduled by the EAA, mine by the IAC. I guess the two don't compare notes.

At least this means that Dick won't be attending my forum so I can talk freely about him without fear of retribution.
