Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Next to flying aerobatically themselves, this book is the closest pilots can get to the advanced aerobatics experience. For the many pilots who do want or need to learn specific maneuvers, there is no better guidance than this book. A lesson-by-lesson guide, it combines accessible text from aerobatics champions with sequential cockpit view photographs and detailed graphic illustration to provide a hands-on primer on specific advanced aerobatic maneuvers. Each maneuver is given an entire chapter, with a clear description of its elements; discussion of the theory behind it; step-by-step details on how to fly it; a look at the finer points and common errors; and corrective measures to take if something goes wrong. Spicing up the lessons are the personal advanced aerobatic tips of such world and national champions as Patty Wagstaff, Les Loudenslager, Phil Knight, and Xavier de L'Apparent, and advice from U.S. National Team trainer John Morrissey. This book also provides coverage of training regimens, and high-performance aerobatic aircraft.

By A Customer on November 1, 1999
Format: Paperback
The book is sensational! It is very well written, it describes the acrobatic maneuvers accurately and offers a lot of information, technical and historical datas about the planes. It is really indispensable for all those that love aerial acrobatics, pilots or not. To read this book is to be close to the reality of the championships of aerial acrobatics. A good clue, is to read the pilot's Diana Hakala deposition. For change of information on aerial acrobatics, please enter in contact with me Butiman@onda.com.br

The snippets from various famous aerobatic champs are what make this book shine. The maneuver descriptions are very accurate, and the "pro tips" will help pilots at all levels. This book will be in my library for a long time!

Unfortunately, not nearly as good as the author's Basic Aerobatics. It does not have the same (excellent) consistent description of each maneuver. In fact, several of the pages look like reproductions of handouts.

Overall, appears to be thrown together, to capitalize on the success of the initial book. Purchase "Better Aerobatics" if you want detailed descriptions and instructions for advanced aerobatics -- "Better Aerobatics" is a vastly superior book.
