Formation Flight and AEROBATIC LOOPIN Questions

Post by PONY 0 » 28 Oct 2006, 19:24

Hy a post to the real Pilots i need to know exaktly the parameters for the Looping the problem is in the first Phase before we reach the Top we are closed but the way to the TOP we gain in spacing betwen each aircraft and we have no extra Power to correcting this misstake.

And my Questions is how we can fly a tight closed Looping with the SAFIR.

A example a Looping in the Phantom F-4EII but we have enough thrust to correcting also in the MB339 but Props making dificult.

Hello Thomas!

Maybe a little late, but nevertheless...

The following comes from the austrian's aerobatic-education-guide to the Safir-D.

For a looping, you need to dive first. Approximately 20° Nose down. At 140KIAS you enter the looping, which will result in around 3,2g.
On top, you must push the stick. This is due to the low airspeed - approx 60KIAS - which makes the round looping look rather like an egg if you keep it pulled.
On the downward-part you must pull out the power to avoid overspeed, this will happen again and most likely at around 20° nose down.

To do this in aerobatic - and in the sim - there is almost no other possibility than to fly the procedure pretty exact (by feeling alone instead of chasing the instruments).

As you already mention yourself, the Safir is indeed not very well powered...

Cheers,

Daniel
