RE: [Acro] Need Pitts Tips


Matt, you should try fly your Citabria from the rear seat to get the 'feel' of sitting behind a wing, it may help you quite alot, one of the weirdest things i ever felt was sitting behind the wing. 
 
Remember, most pilots tend to slip to the left most of the time, make sure that in your training you do as much crosswind training from both sides.
Remember!, that when the instructor jumps out for you to go solo, that you have lost a hell of a lot of weight, the pitts perfoms quite different with one up!
