a stall which makes the nether regions of your seat cringe and the scene go from blue to green rather quickly other wise known as a whip stall, for instance be in level cruise pull the power back to idle and pull the yoke/ stick full aft and hold it maintaining coordination with the rudder as you fall to the earth. kinda cool after the first time. hehehe :o

That's also a aerobatics maneuver (when done intentionally) isn't it?

Btw, it reminds me of the joke: To go up, pull the stick back. To go down, pull the stick back harder. :D

Frank,

It's not really an aerobatic maneuver, since you're not rolling or pitching more than a certain number of degrees.  I forget how much roll or pitch makes it aerobatic, though. 

A spin is an aerobatic maneuver, and can only be performed intentionally in certain aircraft (utility or aerobatic category).

30 deg pitch   60 deg bank and if done right you are not performing an aerobatic manuver but an extreme parabolic curve  or weightless ness off to work hehe 8)

On this argument....I once tried the 0 gravity with my former boyfriend, who performed it to let me see what happens. is this an aerobatic maneuver or it's just felt alike inside the plane?!?

The only time I experienced 0g was on a ride with my brother. It's always too short though when you're in a small plane... I would really love to do a ballistic flight, like the NASA does it, just once to see what it's like for two minutes or so! Does anyone know if you can book such a flight? I probably can't afford it anyway, but it's still a more realistic goal than a space trip!  ;) (which I'd love to do too!)

Ah, I didn't know there was a g definition of what a aerobatics manouver, thanks for the info :)

Stef: I too would love a ride on the vomic comet since I'm very interested in real wolrd space and space-travel as well as science fiction and in real life there's no such thing as artificial gravity like on Star Trek, Star Wars, Firefly etc. and I'd like to know just how weird it feels with the blood going to the head etc. from the 0 g you experience. It's fun to think about too, it's not 0 g since you're effected by earth's gravity but effectively the plane's carefully planned decent effectively gives you the same feel as 0 g, so in reality you're both experiencing 0 g and earth gravity at the same time, physics is actually pretty cool I think.
However I don't think it lasts 2 minutes, to my knowledge it's only 30-60 seconds at the most it can do that.

If you have lots of extra money, you can try it out here:

First you cough of the money... then maybe something else.  :D

Frank, I ignore if it's conceived as an aerobatic maneuver, in fact I was asking....
Maybe I wasn't clear enough  :) :) :) :)

I believe that link for ZeroG is the same one I was aware of from the St. Louis Science Center.  Seems to be the same place.  I believe a trip runs close to $4,000 USD... not including the cost of getting up and back to the place, of course.

Happy it was this post I made before you where I myself raised the question about the definition of what aerobatics was, I guess I should've used quotes or at least mention the name of the person I was replying specifically too, sorry for the misunderstanding.

Oh, no worries! I was thinking that maybe you got what I was asking as being a reply and then you would have had false info! And well, I actually could have understood that you were talking about another message, since there there is in fact the definition of aerobatics given by flyboye! I sometimes read through the forum too fast!
