Aspen Avionics, Booth 3164, will be hosting an autograph session with Living Legend of Aviation Chuck Aaron at Heli-Expo on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. Aaron is the only pilot licensed by the FAA to perform aerobatics in a helicopter in the United States, and one of only three such pilots in the world. He is also a member of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots (SETP).

Aaron flies the Red Bull aerobatic helicopter, and performs aerobatic maneuvers such as the loop, roll, vertical climb, Split S, Cuban Eight, Immelman, and “Chuckcevak” (his version of a Lomcovak) in a modified MBB Bo 105. He is also the first helicopter pilot honored in 2009 with the Art Scholl Showmanship Award given by the International Council of Air Shows.
“I’m looking forward to being with a sea of people who are as passionate about helicopters as I am,” says Chuck. “I’d love to meet as many HAI attendees as possible, so don’t be shy. I love answering questions about my flying.”
