Acrobatic flip for the wife

Unread post by Fishy » Sat May 07, 2022 12:14 pm

Hi All

Can somebody please point me into the right direction (website or phone number) as to where I can find a credible and trusted provider of such a service (aerobatic flip).

She has gone in a Pitts Special before (with the Goodyear (at the time) team) and would love to do something similar again.

Thanks for the help

Why not give Ivan van der Schaar at FABB a call, he has a Pitts Special and Stearman for Aerobatic Flips

Thank you for the info ScubaFlyer. I think a Stearman flight should get onto my bucketlist very quickly! 8)

Only one thing better than going in Pitts would be coming in a Stearman.
