The two place Pitts Special was originally developed and is still sold predominately as a training aircraft for teaching aerobatics. It is less regarded as being an ideal aircraft for teaching many other flying skills, navigation included. Whilst it is more demanding than most aircraft used for training, particularly during the take off and landing, it is also a more rewarding aeroplane in which to learn to fly. At Flights & Dreams we are able to teach for the Private Pilots Licence in the Pitts.
Due to the more lively nature of its handling characteristics some natural talent or familiarity with similarly responsive machinery is beneficial. The performance and capability will appeal especially to those with a motor or motor cycle racing background.
