acˇroˇbatˇic   
adjective
1. of, pertaining to, or like an acrobat or acrobatics.

2. having the good balance, agility, and coordination of an acrobat.

Curious? I suspect the term "acrobatic" is used due to being an adjective, as in "acrobatic endorsement", whilst "aerobatic" is a noun?

I guess the holder of an acrobatic endorsement is authorised to perform aerobatics?
