OUR AIRCRAFT

EXTRA 300L

We use the most capable aircraft in the world and for our training. The Extra 300L is used globally as the aircraft to fly unusual attitudes in. This mostly carbon fiber, fully aerobatic, tandem two-seat competition aircraft is the world's only current production Transport Canada & FAA certified +10/-10 G aircraft. It has become the plane to beat at the highest levels of competition aerobatics. Best known for its extremely light control stick forces and its dazzling 400°/second roll rate. A pilot's dream plane, the Extra 300L is often regarded as the most agile, most powerful, best performing, most fun 2 place aircraft they have ever flown. Designed and built by Walter Extra in Germany, this aircraft is very strong and built to last, has very few moving parts, and is low maintenance. It is the only Transport Canada certified aircraft of its kind capable of winning the World Aerobatic Championships, and the perfect aircraft for this training platform. The safest airplane that’s certified for commercial use, nothing taught in the extra is unique to that airplane, it is directly transferrable to your aircraft.

"Why the Extra 300?  How does that transfer to my personal aircraft, Jet, or airliner?"

The Extra 300 is the only commercially certified fully aerobatic aircraft, with a flight envelope certified for extreme negative and positive G loads. This training could not be conducted on any other aircraft, including basic aerobatic aircraft with reduced and limited G loads. Simulators cannot recreate G loads as well as startle factors like an actual aircraft can. We don’t have to worry about “breaking” the aircraft and therefore, can complete a much wider training platform.
