About this site:
Aguayo Aerosports is an organization created to provide an educational and informational platform for Upset Prevention & Recovery Training and the Sport of Competition Aerobatics. We do this by providing quality instruction while promoting and encouraging aviation safety.
If you're new to or interested in this kind of flying and need guidance on how to get started, we can help! If you are an experienced aerobatic pilot, you may also find information useful to you.
Although we strive to provide accurate, reliable and meaningful information, this website is not intended to substitute proper aerobatic training from a qualified instructor.
