In 1913 a Frenchman by the name of Pegoud was the first person to perform aerobatics in a specially strengthened Bleriot. The first loop was made by Piotr Nesterov on 20th August 1913 in a Nieuport Monoplane.

Getting Started

Before starting aerobatics the first thing to do is to learn how to recover the aircraft from an inadvertent stall. This is very important as certain manoeuvres will lead to low speed and high angles of attack, the perfect conditions from which the wing can stall.


An aerobatic manoeuvre which combines extreme roll pitch and yaw changes to produce a violent movement of the aircraft. The name is derived from a Polish word which describes the effect of too much liqueur spirit.
