Several of us are working to promote the formation of aerobatic flying clubs, inspired by clubs in Britain and other countries in which general aviation is much more expensive than in the U.S. Our thought is that it's much harder to find acro airplanes to rent or instruction, but if you can find several other pilots who want to break into aerobatics, they can form a group. A club (or other group-ownership arrangement) can be as few as a handful of pilots who kick in to buy a SuperD or a clipped-wing Cub. A local IAC chapter can help. Let me know if you'd like more information. I'll cross-post this message in Flying Clubs. A problem with the acro community is that it may mostly be people who already own or have access to a ride; we want to reach those who can't afford a ride on their own or can't rent.
