Part 61 Training Information
Have a look around the pages for information on courses available for flight activity and design feature endorsements. More information supporting the training is provided on password protected pages for trainees.
Much of the training information has been for the Super Decathlon with a bit of information on the Pitts S-2A but now, with the joint acquisition of VH-DAJ, there is also information about the Pitts S-2C. Cessna 152 Aerobat VH-HEZ has been acquired by Ozaeros so there is now information on that here too.
