Aerobatic Flight Training in Manitoba

Departed CYYZ on Thursday May 25 for CYWG and then checked into a hotel in Steinbach, Manitoba for the weekend.

The weather was good for several training flights on Friday May 26 and several more on Saturday May 27.

The flights started with steep turns, spiral dives, power-on stalls, then advanced to spins, rolls, and loops.

In the Citabria 7ECA the entry speed for a roll is 120 MPH and its 140 MPH for the loop.  A loop registers 3.5g on the g-meter.

                    

The weather wasn’t great on Sunday May 28, so I headed back to the Winnipeg airport earlier in the day to visit the Royal Aviation Museum of Western Canada before the flight back to Toronto.

          

Next up is to buy a parachute and a GoPro for Citabria FAKI !
