The Can-Am Super Pitts Airshow and Competition Airplane
The plane Steve Jackovich uses for both competition flying and when he set the World Time-To-Climb record was built by Rich Bastian of Burns, Wyoming and weighs in at an amazingly low 785 pounds when empty.
This highly modified Pitts S1 hybrid is powered by a Lycoming AEIO-360 on steroids, putting out 230+ horsepower while swinging a German made MT composite constant speed aerobatic propeller.
The wings were designed and built in Canada by former Canadian Aerobatic Champion Gordon Price. They produce a phenomenal unprecedented cosmic roll rate, which combined with all the other aerodynamic refinements and outstanding power to weight ratio, allow for a superb, original and unforgettable airshow performance.
Some of the maneuvers you will see at a Steve Jackovich Airshow:
1. Ape Hanger.
*Along with the special surprise of a possible Inverted Harrier Pass and/or a Double Eventail.*
