Get Your Spinning Endorsement!

Description: A spinning endorsement will teach you excellent stick and rudder co-ordination and increase your confidence in flying. It will also help you to immediately recognise and recover from a spin in the safest and quickest manner.

What do I get?

  • Spinning Endorsement on your RPL or above.  Our advanced spin recovery course goes way beyond the CASA requirements to teach you how to confidently recover from incipient spins, fully developed (stabalised) spins, aggravated / mis-handled spin recovery, and the PARE and Beggs-Mueller recovery methods. 

Our Course Minimum Hours: There are no minimum hours as this course is competency based.  Some flyng schools will give a spin recovery endorsement after a briefing and one flight.  Not here!!  Typically it will take  3 – 5 hours to meet our standard.

Indicative Cost:  Dual hourly rate is: $379.00 incl GST.  Ground briefings  incl. reference material $45.00 Inc GST.  Book your first flight, then pay as you go.

Get Your Tailwheel and MPPC Endorsements!

Description: Tailwheel and Manual Propeller Pitch Control (MPPC, use to be CSU) Endorsements completed in the Extra 300 advanced aerobatic aircraft.  

What do I get?

  • High performance, tailwheel training!  If you just want a Tail-wheel ‘endorsement’ in your logbok, this is probably not for you!  However, if you want to really learn the skills needed to fly high performance, ‘twitchy taildraggers’ with confidence, then this endorsement is definately for you!  Manual Propeller Pitch Control endorsement can be included if required (This was called a Constant Speed Unit CSU Endorsement)

Our Course Minimum Hours: The course is competency based and the Extra 300 mid wing is not an easy tailwheel aircraft to master.  Typically between 4 hours and 10 hours to reach solo standard.
