Cessna 152A Aerobatics

September 1, 2009

Taking a Cessna 152A up for some aerobatics at Jandakot, trying out everything possible in its performance envelope:

Aileron rolls
Barrell Rolls
Cuban-8s
Snap Rolls
Vertical Rolls
Immelmans
Spins
Stall Turns
Split-S’,
etc.

Probably the hardest manouevers to pull off are the vertical rolls and stall turns. They require the adoption of the exact vertical attitude quickly ‘cos the 152s engine won’t fight gravity for longer than a second 🙁

I need more practice but it’s a lot of fun!
