CAP10 – Aerobatic Trainer
This French built aerobatic trainer is the backbone of our advanced handling training fleet.
The aircraft exhibits superb flying qualities making it not only a delight to fly but a superior trainer. The Cap10 makes for a great transitional aircraft for those looking to fly other high performance aircraft such as the Vans RV family and other sport aircraft.
This aircraft is available for hands on aerobatics for beginners and qualified pilots alike. Southern Biplanes uses the CAP10 in the Silver Wings hands-on experience in which a beginner can learn to loop and roll in one lesson!
