Roll inverted Pull back on the stick to perform a half loop Level out
Use of the Split-S
When you want to trade altitude for speed As an evasive maneuver for defense As an attack from above for offense
The first Split-S I’ll show is a standard roll, it’s not aggressive.
Roll inverted Pull back for a half-loop Level out
So we get ready, we roll inverted, we pull back on the stick, perform a half-loop and then level out. We have now lost altitude and we’ve gained extra speed.
Snap Roll into Spit-S
Yank the stick to the 7:00(roll left) or 4:00(roll right) position Once inverted, apply full opposite rudder Then pull back
To pull into the snap-roll you have to yank into the 7:00 or 4:00 position, and once your inverted you have to apply full opposite rudder, and then pull back. Doing the Split-S this way completes the maneuver faster and is more aggressive. External views
Combat Example: S.E.5a
2 aircraft on my 6 just shooting at me, some ?jenking? maneuver here to avoid getting hit. I’m in trouble at this point, trying to use the superior roll rate, get into a Split-S nice and fast, get out of their sight underneath their 6, then extend.
That was the Split-S maneuver
