Young Pilots Exhibit Their Talents At Pensacola Beach Air Show

Young Pilots Exhibit Their Talents At Pensacola Beach Air ShowEven without the world-famous U.S. Navy Blue Angels, whose demonstration season was canceled due to federal budget cuts, the air show will go on over Pensacola Beach on July 12-13.
Organizers with the Santa Rosa Island Authority released a schedule today of aerial acts and a concert that they hope will draw crowds to the 2013 Pensacola Beach Air Show, which is traditionally the island’s biggest tourist draw of the year.

“We have twenty-four air craft that will be flying from 1:00 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. both days,” SRIA Executive Director Buck Lee said in a news release. “Normally a civilian act of this magnitude would cost up to $25.00 per person, but ours is free to the public. We hope next year the United States Navy’s flight demonstration squadron, the Navy Blue Angels, will be able to return for our air show, as they will surely be missed this year.”

The Pensacola Beach Air Show has featured acts in addition to the Blue Angels for years. Last year, AL.com flew with Team RV, a civilian air show team that was scheduled to perform at last year’s show but were unable to perform due to inclement weather.

The 2013 Pensacola Beach Air Show scheduled lineup includes Kevin Coleman, who at only 21 years old is one of the youngest air show celebrities in the world, and Gary Ward, who is the first pilot to begin flying the high-powered MX2 in air shows.
Skip Stewart is an Aerobatic Champion who has won several gold medals in regional competitions and has been awarded two Pitts Trophies. Lima Lima, new to the Pensacola Beach Air Show, stresses precision formation flying from the six ship wedge and double arrowhead to the basic figure four and diamond formations.
Red Star & The Dragon features 800 mph head-on merges between Red Star, a Viper-29, and The Dragon, a BAC-167 Strikemaster. Otto the Helicopter is the only helicopter to perform in the Pensacola Beach Air Show. Known for blowing bubbles, playing with his yo-yo and shooting smoke in all directions, Otto is a true crowd favorite, especially the younger fans.

Flight School and Flight Training Programs

For more than 31 years Aviator has been the leader in multi-engine flight training. We have provided over 5000 professional pilots to the airline industry, both nationally and worldwide, through our Professional Pilot Flight Training Programs. Our FAA-certified Part 141 approved flight programs provide students with the skills and experience demanded by today’s commercial aviation industry. Aviator is accredited by the ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges).

Our Professional Pilot Program is set in a flight training, structured environment to ensure the student receives the knowledge that is required to be a professional pilot. This program is from 0 hours to over 250 hours, of which 200 hours will be multi-engine time. The program includes Private Pilot Single Engine through the Multi-Engine Flight Instructor Certificate. Cross Country flying is coast-to-coast, if desired.

When you choose Aviator, all flight training is logged in aircraft. Our Flight Training Devices (FTDs) are used for ground training purposes only. NO FTDs (SIMULATORS) ARE USED FOR FLIGHT TIME TOWARDS YOUR RATINGS!

This “hands-on” approach provides the best flight training environment for pilots of the future. We encourage training in actual instrument conditions. Flying at the Aviator is 24 hours-a-day, rain or shine. Aviator flight training programs offer more actual multi-engine time than any other school in the country. Our fleet of multi-engine aircraft are equipped with GPS and are being converted to EFIS Systems (Glass Cockpits). Come and take a tour and see the Aviator difference.
