In just about every issue of any of the various flight safety publications there will be accidents...
Welcome to Barry Smith's ACRO website
The world of serious sport and competition aerobatics is now almost exclusively dominated by aeroplanes that are operationally expensive, even in the lower competition levels, effectively preventing access to pilots with less expendable incomes.
In a sport that needs lots of regular practise to develop the essential skills, it’s inevitable that much talent is unnecessarily lost . . .
As the cost of fuel increases across the world, operationally affordable but competition capable aeroplanes must one day become fashionable and create a viable market to produce them.
In the meantime, in retirement, my vocation and enthusiasm continues in the design, development and operation of affordable aerobatic engines and aeroplanes.
Have fun! - Barry
