We in the United States are privileged to be able to fly a variety of aircraft at reasonable prices with some of the most competent flight instructors available. As a service to the aerobatic community, the International Aerobatic Club maintains a list of aerobatic schools and flight instructors across the country and the world.

Many pilots don’t realize that the cooler fall and winter air provides some of the smoothest flying of the entire year. Sure, it may take a bit more effort to get the airplane and pilot warmed up for the flight, but the reward is silky smooth air that allows a pilot to literally feel his own wake at the end of a properly executed maneuver. Try doing that during a 90-degree summer day with cumulus popping up all over the place!
