Aerobatic stunt flying experience days start off on the ground with a comprehensive briefing and chat through any specific requirements with an instructor so that the flight can be tailored to specific requirements (and levels of braveness). Then climb aboard the plane - either a British Slingsby Firefly, a De Havilland Chipmunk or modern light aircraft such as a Cessna. Once airborne, the expert pilot will demonstrate what the craft can do - so hang on tight for an aerobatic sequence including a roll, loop or stall turn. During the flight, take over the controls to experience the sensation of flying a plane first-hand.
