Hello, Everybody!
I just would like to ask two questions about a Cessna 150 (or 152), which was also called "Aerobat".

1. What model exactly was called "Aerobat", Cessna 150 or 152?

2. What aerobatic maneuvers it's certified for?

Thanks! :)

Respectfully Yours,

The Aerobat is a 150. The tail is stronger, with more ribs and thicker skin. The wings also have strength improvements.

Approved maneuvers:
Spins
Chandelles
Lazy Eights
Steep Turns >60-degrees bank
Loop
Barrel Roll
Aileron Roll
Snap Roll
Cuban 8's
Immelmann,
Vertical Reversement

LAST EDITED ON Jul-20-03 AT 06:40PM (EDT)[p]Cessna made a 152 Aerobat also. I learned spins, rolls, loops and a few other aerobatic maneuvers in one.

I also did some aerobatics in a 152 Aerobat. I remember doing spins, loops, barrel rolls, aileron rolls, stall turns (hammerheads), tail slides and cuban eights.

Strangely a non aerobatic C152 that I learned in had placards stating that spins were prohibited. My instructor at the time ignored these stating, "I know this aircraft & those placards are incorrect! 152's spin" I always wondered about that......

I guess the old adage, "there are old pilots and there are bold pilots, but there are no old, bold pilots" may one day turn out to be correct. :-hmmm
