Aerobatic Flight
Flight was at Shoreham in a Stampe (Open seat biplane).
The reception, briefing and flight were handled in a very friendly and professional manner with emphasis on safety. All the aircraft were in immaculate condition. I would recommend this experience to anyone with the urge to discover the thrill of aerobatics in a vintage aircraft.

Aerobatic Flight: Fascinating Facts

As soon as early aviators mastered the feat of staying aloft they wanted to explore the unique freedom allowed by flight. Probably the first 'aerobatic' pilot was Eugene Lefebvre, who thrilled the crowds with his swooping and diving in his 'Wright Flyer' at the world's first aviation meeting at Reims in 1909. Later, Louis Bleriot decided to show that his aeroplanes were safer because they could be recovered to level flight from almost any attitude, however extreme. Adolphe Pegoud was employed as test pilot and on 1 September 1913 he completed the world's first inverted flight, which confounded critics who said that an aeroplane wing could not produce lift upside down. On 9 September 1913 at Kiev, Lt. Petr Nikolaevich Nesterov created the first 'loop the loop' in a Russian Army 70 h.p. Nieuport monoplane. After the First World War air shows became very popular, particularly in America. 'Flying circuses' offered display aerobatics and the more nearly impossible and deadly a stunt appeared, the better spectators like it. Despite incredible advances in technology, very little changed in aerobatics until the 1960s, when highly specialised aircraft used the rotating mass of the engine and propeller as a gyroscope to make the planes tumble in the sky, doing somersaults and rotations on their own length.
