The boys and girls who run these ultimate aerobatics packages call it the ‘Utter Nutter’ and we think you do have to be just a little bit mad to actually want to get in one of these Extra 300 planes and execute the most extreme aerobatics sequence you’ll ever see offered on any activity gift website anywhere
Believe us there are not many qualified aerobatics pilots who can confidently pull off these manoeuvres and even the highly experienced ones are at risk of breaking out into a bit of a sweat when it comes to initiating these seriously extreme aerial stunts.
So if you think you can handle the world of high altitude rotations and spins what can you expect on your aerobatics day here at Goodwood? Well we’d advise you to expect the unexpected! G forces do very strange things to people so you might find yourself grabbing hold of the shoulder straps as you feel yourself lifting out of your seat or a bizarre urge to lift your feet off the floor when you get the odd sensation of being pushed into your seat.
One things for sure forget the craziest theme park ride you’ve ever been on this is way more extreme. And if you manage to complete the whole sequence you even get your name added to the Utter Nutter roll of honour board in the clubhouse!
This ultimate display run of aerobatics is made up of five of the most visually impressive technically difficult and physically challenging of tricks. The Cravat will have you twisting and turning on all axes but that’s tame when you compare it to the Inverted loop. You start by flying upside down then execute a loop the loop that’ll have you wondering which way is up.
The extremity factor is then upped another notch when you try a Ruade. This is a gyroscopic figure in the sky that’ll see you tumbling over your own nose – and all whilst flying at high speed. If you’re still compos mentis after that little move it’s time for an even more complicated Lomcevak tumble
Last but by definitely no means least it’s a Mulleroid. This is world aerobatics champion Eric Mueller’s signature move in the air. The Extra will be pushed to limits of flying as you perform this complicated blend of vertical uplink aileron roll and negative flick rolls above the peaceful West Sussex countryside all finished off with an accelerated spin.
If all that is just a little too extreme for you opt for the Ultimate experience where you’ll be busting some of the classic air display moves in one of the school’s fabulous Extra aircraft. It’s still flying by the seat of your pants but less heart-stopping!
Phew! Just writing about these crazy experiences makes us feel exhausted. If you’ve got what it takes to tackle the ultimate in aerobatics you will love the extreme sensations as the expert display pilot shows off the aerobatic prowess of the Extra 300 above the rather lovely countryside around Goodwood in West Sussex. Not that you’ll have much time to look as for much of the flight you’ll be upside down!
