When you ask a stunt pilot in an airshow how the risk can be controlled, the maxim usually used is “make what is easy look difficult, and what is difficult…don’t do it.” However, the reality of airshows reveals to us that if in aviation there is no such thing as zero risk, this is even truer in the world of aerobatic exhibitions.
Competitions begin soon, and a good flight training that is technical (sequences, maneuvers, etc.) as well as physical is crucial to establish a good season and meet the objectives we have proposed, regardless of the type, during the planned aerobatic competitions for this year.
Skip Stewart is one of the most entertaining airshow pilots in the world. With more than 9,000 total flight hours, of which more than 2,000 represent aerobatic flight, he has more than 10 years under his belt performing for thousands of fans that have accumulated in his airshow circuits.
