  • Mike Wiskus – Watch this National Aerobatic Champion’s incredible performance in his Lucas Oil highly-modified Pitts aircraft “Super Stinker”. If you can believe it, he bought the aircraft on eBay as a wrecked airplane.
  • Jacquie B…Ladies, it’s Time to Fly – See this accomplished female aerobatic pilot put her Extra 300S aircraft through the paces. She spends time inspiring children to do great things.
