A featured aircraft in the Red Bull Air Race, the Extra Aircraft Stunt Plane has a top speed of 410 km/h, a climb rate of 2000 feet per minute and a staggering roll rate of 360 degrees per second. It is rated to a neck numbing positive 8 G’s and negative 4 G’s!
And if that isn't enough, this is no ordinary Extra. Nicholas Ivanov, fondly named 'The Quick Corsican', won the Perth 2007 leg in this very Extra 300SR aircraft.
After a briefing with your pilot, strap in and prepare to get airborne. Listen into air traffic control as your pilot prepares for take-off. Then the real fun begins.
Heading west towards the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, you soon reach St Mary’s - the designated training area where you climb to a dizzy 3500 ft - 4000 ft.
Once you’re comfortable with the basic aerobatics – hold on tight as the pilot shows you what this aircraft is really capable of. You’ll experience a sequence of maneuvers that will test your limits.
This flight is not for the faint-hearted with G forces of anywhere between positive 8G and negative 4G, alternatively being pushed into your seat or pulled hard against your harness. The large bubble canopy will give you unrivaled, uninterrupted views of the surrounding landscape.
This is the most extreme aerobatic experience around. After you’ve had your fill of neck numbing, adrenaline flooding aerial ballet you’ll head back to Bankstown. Landing back you’ll be hard-pressed to stop smiling for the rest of the day.
