Flying aerobatics helps pilots avoid and react to emergency situations and unusual attitudes
Well, for an initial CFI certificate it is required anyway (FAR 61.183). So, if you plan to be a CFI you must get it at some point, whether during your private, instrument or commercial training. Besides, if you were put into a spin right now, how would you react? Spin training can be used to simulate real-world risks. Distractions, cross controlled stalls turning base to final, accelerated stalls, and incorrect stall recoveries are potential life-threatening events if you enter a spin and do not know how to recover. Spin training with a CFI with experience in the field is critical to enhancing pilot safety and risk avoidance.
You will learn to use the rudder more precisely for coordinated flight and increase awareness of the wind and how it affects the aircraft in the two most critical phases of flight- takeoff and landing. A tailwheel aircraft is much less forgiving when accounting for wind than a tri-cycle gear aircraft and forces the pilot to be more focused and aware.
Flying aerobatics develops stick and rudder skills and helps pilots avoid and react to emergency situations and unusual attitudes. Not to mention no roller coaster even comes close to the adrenaline rush of your first loop, barrel roll or inverted flight. Do it because it is fun!
