TOM LARKIN

MINI JET AIRSHOWS is a lifelong dream of the pilot Tom "Lark" Larkin. What started off as a half partnership in an RV-6 with his brother Larry, eventually turned into a brief ownership in a Twin Comanche, a total rebuild and several hundred hours of flying in a Staudacher, and then the once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase and perform in a SubSonex Jet.
Now it's' all about "high energy" airshows and interacting with kids. Stay tuned for an airshow in your area and come see what this amazing little jet can do!

JASON FLOOD

Jason Flood flies a Pitts S-1S. As one of the youngest aerobatic pilots flying in the U.S. today, his career is already taking off. Jason has made a habit of ranking 1st place in just about all of the regional aerobatic competitions he attends. 

GARY WARD

Gary Ward's MX2 is the latest design in high energy monoplanes. All of the structural components (with the exception of the landing gear and engine mounts) are constructed of carbon fiber. It's very strong and designed well for excess of plus or minus 10 G's.

NAKAJIMA B5N KATE & FG-1D CORSAIR

The Nakajima B5N2 ("Kate") was the sole shipboard torpedo-bomber of the Japanese Navy at the start if the Pacific War. In War, it outperformed any Allied ship borne torpedo bomber until around 1942.

The FG-ID Corsair served in the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, Fleet Air Arm, and the Royal New Zealand Air Force, as well as the French Navy Aeronavale. The Corsair proved to be not only an outstanding fighter, but an excellent fight-bomber as well.
