The Airshow Figures

  • Torque Roll  - The NWA signature figure starts with full power 210mph, 7g pull to a vertical climb whilst performing continuous rolls. Our speed will eventually decay and we will fall backwards though the sky whilst still rolling.
  • Mulleroid  - The classic airshow opener and extremely challenging to fly. Another max power, high speed, high g pull to a vertical climb whilst rolling. At the top of the climb the aircraft will resemble a frisbee as we transition to an accelerated flat spin to return to our starting altitude (aka the Maverick spin).
  • Ruade  - from the French language 'kick from an ass'. Using gyroscopics to play with physics the aircraft is placed into a 45 degree climb on its side (known as knife edge flight) and then tumbled nose over tail.
  • Outside Loop -  the most physically demanding manoeuvre, you will be subjected to high negative 'g' loads as the aircraft is pushed upside down around a loop in the sky.
  • Flicker Finish  - we'll leave this one as a surprise!!

What Can I Expect

Have you got what it takes to handle the Airshow Hero Aerobatics experience? Fly out of Manchester Barton Aerodrome in an Extra 200 aerobatic aircraft and be the champion of aerial stunts performed by your professional aerobatic pilot.

Writing this we are actually glad we have our feet on the actual ground. Just thinking about all those G-force pulling aerobatic moves makes us feel a little giddy. If you are the original adrenaline-hunting daredevil, you will absolutely love this experience.

The Extra 200 is an immensely strong aircraft with an unlimited aerobatic capability - but will this flight turn you into an airshow hero or zero?

Pilots flying their carefully choreographed routines at air displays handle extreme forces and you will be taught some ‘tricks of the trade' for coping with up to -/+ 7 G when performing aerial stunts.

Expect to go big from the moment you reach altitude, with a breathtaking sequence of up to five of the very best and most impressive aerobatic manoeuvres. Literally hang on tight, as your world is totally turned upside down.

Complete your mission and your name will be added to the Airshow Hero Aerobatics wall of fame and you will receive an Airshow Hero patch too. And as a super extra, your experience includes a video of your performance inside the cockpit - and that is bound to include lots of face-pulling and wide-eyed grimaces!
