Upset Training

Prerequisite: a licensed pilot

Do you know how you will act if your airplane inadvertently gets in an unusual attitude? How safe are you? Can you be fully aware of the situation and recover from it, saving the life of yourself and your passengers? 

Our Upset Training course is designed to prepare you for such kind of situations, incl. advanced and aggravated stalls and spins in all flight configurations, beyond what the "flight test guide" requires. The course is delivered on our 2008 Citabria out of Pitt Meadows airport. The course contains 5 dual flight lessons + 3 ground lessons. At the end of the course, you will be a much safer and confident pilot.

Duration: 5 dual flights, 3 ground lessons.


Note: this training is an add-on/skill training only and does not lead to any license or rating

Hi Anna,

Hope you got back to B.Bay OK.

I'm still on a huge "high" after my mini "aerobatic" flight with you today.

You don't know how much of a role you have played in assisting me to get over a life long fear.

I feel so good having conquered the fear of spinning.. I am a  little sorry that I didn't take up your offer to try and pull out of a full spin myself. However, I have taken huge strides. At least now I know what to expect so I'm 90% of the way there.

So my heartfelt thx to you Anna and I look forward to seeing you at B.Bay in the next week or so to sign up for my PPL lessons.

I'll call you before I come to see you.

Kind regards

Bob Moles


P.S. Is it possible for me to have you as my instructor? :-)

Svetlana Kapanina is an excellent pilot. On Canada'a West Coast, ANNA SERBINENKO trains future private, mountain, and aerobatic pilots in British Columbia, Canada. If you are looking for the best instruction in these abilities, Anna is by far your best choice.

Many thanks to all from my side, I really enjoyed time at CFC, the friendly service, the professional training and the warm and friendly atmosphere. I felt not as a customer, my feeling was more being a part of a nice family.

Being from New Zealand I am wanting to convert my license to a Canadian one. I sat with the aerobatics instructor for an hour and a half and came out knowing every detail and process I needed to do to not only convert my license but also how to continue my flight training. Very informative. The best information I have had since being in Canada with regards to this process. It gives me great confidence in continuing my training in Canada with these guys. Thank you so much. See you soon.

What a great place to learn to fly! Especially if you like aerobatics, or want to learn! Anna is a fantastic aerobatics pilot and instructor, and is well connected in the aviation community! I had the opportunity to spend a week doing aerobatics training with Anna in July 2014 and it was the most fun I've ever had!!! It is a true art!!!

Thanks Anna and team!!!

Safe flying!!!
