    I have flown with Spencer in that very plane. It was a blast...but after a few hammerheads and spins....I was not feeling very awesome. He used to have (maybe he still does) stickers of a stick-figure puking that he added whenever somebody got sick.

    I'd give it a whirl. If flying back from LZU last week didn't get me to barf...

    FIFY :)

    Nah, aerobatics are fun. Just don't let the pilot talk you into eating before. Yeah "full stomach is happy stomach" does not work in the cockpit at 4 Gs. :)

    I did an eight lesson intro to aerobatics a number of years ago. Before the last lesson, the CFI and I ate at a neighbors hangar party. Two brats with mustard and onions, potato salad, and cherry pie.

    Then we did pretty much the entire routine. Immelmans split s cloverleafs snaps etc. No issues.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear, I meant for newbies.
    Once used to Gs, it's no biggie. But the first one can be a surprise for the pax.
