Thumbs up Look who's on the cover of Sport Aerobatics!

I'm going to toot Jerry Esquenazi's horn a bit. Getting your plane on the cover of Sport Aerobatics just means you have a beautiful airplane. Winning the Sportsman Regional Champion position in TWO IAC regions means you know how to fly the wings off that beautiful airplane.

Jerry took top honors in the Northeast region in 2018 with an overall average score of 82.92 percent! He also took top honors in the Southeast region with a mind-blowing overall score of 83.83 percent! By the way, second place honors in the Southeast region went to our own Randy King, flying his RV-8.

Jerry will be stepping up to the Intermediate category in 2019 just to give me a hard time. All you Sportsman competitors can take a breather.

Thank you guys. I?m not going to be giving Ron a hard time anytime soon! I still have a lot to learn. The step to Intermediate will be like drinking from the proverbial fire hose! Snaps, rolling turns, neg G pushes, and the ?make or break you? Unknown program will certainly provide a challenge.

Curt, Ron is THE AMBASSADOR! I am the disciple. Although, my hope is that an RV on the cover of Sport Aerobatics will help motivate more RVers to join in on the fun. Who would of thunk?!; An RV on the cover of IAC?s magazine where one would normally find Pitts?s, Decathlons, Staudachers, and Extras.

A little about the picture. The photo was taken just after the US Nationals Aerobatics Championships in September at Oshkosh. The photographer was IAC?s very own Evan Peers. Sport Aviation?s photographer Connor Madison also took some amazing pictures. The photos were taken from an A36 Bonanza with the doors removed. It was a great opportunity and there was no way I was passing up on that just to get home a little earlier! It had already been a very long week. After seeing the pictures in October, my hope was that someday one of the pics might show up across the changing banner on IAC?s website. I had no idea it was going to show up in the magazine, much less the cover! I hadn?t even seen the magazine yet when a friend texted the picture to me. You can imagine my surprise!

In any case, it?s all very exciting. Thank you everyone for your support and encouragement.
