Default G'day from Australia


Hi All,

I've just discovered your forum and joined in recent days and thought
I'd say g'day.

I'm from 'down under' in Australia and interested in all aspects of
aviation.

I fly for a living and write for different aviation journals as well.

I look forward to seeing you all around the forum.

Cheers

Owen

Hi Owen,
Welcome. I too have just joined the group.

I would like to learn how to fly. I've done some research and learning
to fly cessna is within my immediate reach.

What I'd like to know is what is the difference between a cessna and an
aerobatics plane? Could a cessna do a barrel roll?

Planes intended for aerobatics usually have stronger airframes to take
the g's involved in flick movements, and sometimes have engines
capable of a little (or long) inverted flight.
Some cessna 150s were beefed up as "Aerobat 150s".
It is true that a smooth barrel roll can keep even a 'utility' rated
airframe inside its safety envelope.
