The advisory circular (AC) describes an acceptable means of compliance with requirements for ground syllabus and flight syllabus content for meeting the Civil Aviation Rule requirements for the issue of an Aerobatic Flight Rating.

This AC relates specifically to Civil Aviation Rule Part 61 Subpart L – Aerobatic Flight Rating.

Change notice

Revision 4 replaces Revision 3, which was dated 9 May 2007. Revision 4 adds a Version History, corrects typographical and formatting errors and standardises the format so it is more like other ACs in this series.

There have also been requests, through the AC feedback survey, for it to be possible for participants to cut and paste syllabi items more easily into a spreadsheet. We have created a write-protected Word version of this AC, for this, which can be downloaded here:
