Okay I was thinking after my CFI has deemed me a safe and proficient pilot, is it possible to get aerobatic training? I'm only 16 so I can't get my PPL for another year from tomorrow. So I'm trying to decide what to do with "free-time". Is it better to get aerobatic training or Instrument rated first? I would think Aero because it will give you more knowledge on how an airplane handles and reacts, it also teaches spin recovery. I'm just not sure if you could do aerobatic training before you have your PPL, eg. Student Pilot License. Also, is it a rating? Or just training that is highly recommended? Also, where do I find a CFI that teaches it and an aerobatic aircraft to rent. I think a Super Decathlon looks fun and could be used as a learning tool. My aircraft that I'm training in is a tailwheel already. My plan is work on PPL, work on Aerobatic course, work on IFR, get PPL and IFR on my 17th b-day and go from there. Any websites out there dedicated to aerobatics? Thanks.
