The purpose is to explain what is involved with competition flying and show how BAeA competitions provide a structured and progressive path to developing aerobatic skills in a safe and supportive environment. Participation in competitions provides an excellent development route for pilots who have completed an Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) Aerobatics Certificate or EASA Aerobatic Rating and wish to continue learning more about aerobatics.
