No aeroplane has played a bigger role in the evolution of aerobatics than the Pitts Special. Designed by Curtis Pitts, the Pitts Special was first flown in 1944 and quickly rose to fame after dominating aerobatic competitions. The aeroplanes innovative design meant it was the first to display the performance and agility we see at airshows today. In fact, it became the standard by which all other aerobatic aircraft were judged. Seventy years on, it’s still in production.
