New for 2013 – the one-place Pitts S-1S. It’s sheer, unadulterated, scream your brains out fun, whether you do aerobatics or not.
Not just for Aerobatics: Yes, the Pitts Special is a world-class aerobatic airplane, but that is a pilot controlled option. If what you want is a super flying machine, then the Pitts S-1S is the airplane for you.
The two-place Pitts Special S-2B can be flown competitively in unlimited class competition. It is ideal for advanced aerobatic instruction and is our most popular model. Most students who have learned in slower, less responsive aerobatic aircraft, find the Pitts simply requires less work to perform maneuvers accurately. To put it simply, Pitts pilots have more fun!
The S-2B is obviously capable of highly advanced maneuvers, yet it is easy enough to fly for pilots just beginning their aerobatic training. The S-2B has been superseded by the S-2C and is no longer in production. However, Aviat Aircraft carries a full line of original manufacturer’s spare parts.
The concept is simple: Curtis Pitts designed the airplane he thought was necessary for World Aerobatic Contest level flying into the next millennium. What makes the S-1-11B/Super Stinker different from his earlier world-beating designs? 300 horses and 35 years more experience is what makes the difference.
Similar to the S-2B in size and power, but in single-place configuration. This is the most recent addition to the single-place line. The Pitts Special S-2S provides superior vertical penetration and high speed.
