The History of Aerobatics

Published: 23rd Dec 2020 by Nick Buckenham

Developed from scripts by Manfred Echter for gliders and Dave Farley for power pilots, we now have two excellent pages explaining how aerobatic flying has developed into such an astonishing sport during the century since mankind became properly airborne after the early hot-air balloon stage.

Take a moment to visit our new Power and Glider Aerobatics pages on the Championships menu and tell us what you think of them.
