Pitts Special

If you don't like perfect airplanes, you're in the wrong section.
Yeah, we're biased towards Pitts Specials. It's hard not to be.
After 43 years of owning and instructing in them, we know a great airplane when we see one.

'Finally got Around to a pirep on Charley
Yep, we finally got around to putting up a new Pitts pilot report. This time it's the Charley model (S-2C), Aviat's newest. Take a look and let us know what you think.

A Great Gift Idea for Pitts Freaks and Aviation Buffs: The Stonewall File!

Budd's newest novel, is a great gift.

Among other things, the hero flies an S-2C (lucky bastard).
This is a fun adventure tale of a modern day Baby Boomer investigating the
mysterious disappearance of his father's B-17 during WWII.
Go to Stonewall File for sample chapters and ordering information.

Have it autographed to the person you're giving it to. OR give it to yourself :-)
