THE AIRCRAFT

Julia_Windsock

THE PITTS S-2B IS A TWO-SEAT LIGHT AEROBATIC BIPLANE PRODUCED BY AVIAT IN AFTON, WYOMING.

It is powered by a 6-cylinder Lycoming AEIO-540 engine. The wings have four symmetrical ailerons with two aerodynamic counter balances on the lower wings. It has a 23-gallon fuselage tank and a 5-gallon tank in the upper wing.

The Pitts Special is based on the original single-seat design of Curtis Pitts in 1944. The first two-seat version flew in 1967. Aviat still produces the newer version, the S-2C with improved ailerons and rudder.

The Pitts Special dominated world aerobatic competition in the 1960s and 1970s and, even today, remains a potent competition aircraft.

This aircraft was produced in 1995 and has been with JTAirshows since 1998.  It is undergoing major restoration and will be flying this month!! It is highly modified sporting new wooden leading edge wings, 6-six foot ailerons-24 feet total!! That’s a lot of roll rate! It has S-2C gear, reducing drag and giving a clean, fast look! It has Barrett Precision Engine Special Race Engine with 9:1 pistons — and even red cylinders!!
