Chances are you’ve received great instruction from a good AEROBATIC instructor. If so, along with learning how to perform good maneuvers and recover from the bad ones you have also been inspired by that good acro instructor into a mindset based on safety. You know about risk management and have a healthy respect for limits, both for the airplane AND for yourself.
If you are one of these new aerobatic pilots you are well ahead of the game and will no doubt fly safely through your tenure in aviation with little trouble.
On the other hand there just might be a slight chance that a few of you have completed some aerobatic training out here and are entering into this new world of performance not quite as armed and prepared as you should be. This isn’t to say you are unsafe. What it means is that you just might be one of the few pilots out here who go through an aerobatic course or receive some training either with an instructor or on your own, who continue on after receiving that training carrying with you the same mindset you had before the aerobatic training. In other words, you flew well before, made good decisions, flew safely, and were rewarded with accident free results. In other words, your flying was ok prior to your aerobatic instruction so it should be ok afterward.........even better now that you have your new skill set. Well.............perhaps!!! In many cases this will true out, but there is something sinister that might be lurking in the shadows and that sinister something involves the decision making process.
If all your decisions concerning how you were handling the aircraft were good before your aerobatic training, why shouldn’t they post training remain good?
