RE: Barrel Roll With An Airliner

Well, not really a large airliner...but I've heard from a friend, that a friend of his (a pilot, flying bizjets) plays alot with their planes. Barrel rolls, inverted flying and so on. With an empty jet, that is. Is this something "common", in the world of bizjets?

Cheers!
