We got a chance to talk with Aerobatic Champion Patty Wagstaff at EAA Airventure Oshkosh 2014. She talked about everything from her new school in St. Augustine to what’s next in her career.
Her new flight school is the Patty Wagstaff Aerobatic School in St. Augustine, FL. Her and her team of instructors do aerobatic lessons in a Super Decathlon and an Extra 300L, to ease pilots into not only flying aerobatics, but learning how to use the entire flight envelope to be a safer and better pilots.
She is also working on a new Finishing School course where pilots who need to do a flight review, haven’t flown in a while, or just want to brush up, can take the course and get some of those bad habits out of their flying. Skills like keeping the ball centered on climb out or not slipping in turns will be worked on and perfected through the course.
Patty said that she is always looking for the next cool airplane to fly so we asked her to name a few. Her list includes:
* Grumman Bearcat
* Grumman Tigercat
* North American F-86 Sabre
