Think of aerobatic flying as driving the aeroplane to achieve accurate geometric figures in the sky. It's easy to start, supremely difficult to be the best....

Popularity
A small but select following - perhaps 150 pilots regularly compete in the UK.

Location
UK wide - see the BAeA calendar of events at www.aerobatics.org.uk and follow the Competitions > Events Calendar link

Age
To compete you must be a pilot - so from 18 to 80 (and beyond...)

Ability
This is a skill based sport - it is tantalisingly easy to have a go, but training and practise are essential.

Description
We fly aerobatic figures as defined by an international system in front of a panel of judges, who rate the flights on their accuracy and freedom from errors. The flying is never below a 'minimum height' - safety is crucial and paramount to us all.

Dedication
Aerobatic flying is not a casual sport, in most cases it becomes a significant part of people's lives.

Closely Related Activities
In spacial terms - scuba diving, free-fall parachuting, hang gliding.
