The British Aerobatic Academy can train you from the first time you sit in the pilots seat of an aircraft to unlimited international competition aerobatics. We provide the mainstay of competitors in the UK.  55% of our students are international, coming from all over the world to train as national and international aerobatic competitors. We live, eat and breathe flying. Many of our students choose to spend their time between flights chatting over coffee in our relaxed cafe. We have a wide range of world class expertise that we use for critiqued sessions and training camps. Adrian Willis is our chief instructor, currently competing at Advanced level in Britain and having well over 6,000 hours on Extra aircraft. We teach competition aerobatics at all levels, display flying and formation training.
