This Just In...Aviation Acrobat Sean D. Tucker to be the keynote speaker!
Sean D. Tucker flies hard-charging, power aerobatics in his highly modified, one-of-a kind aerobatic dream machine sponsored by Oracle. Its revolutionary set of wings uses 8 ailerons instead of 4 and sports a high-performance tail. With over 20,000 hours, Sean started his flying career crop-dusting in modified Stearman biplanes. In 1975, he began competing, soon earning national recognition and coveted title of “U.S. National Advanced Aerobatics Champion”. Now with over 1,100 performances, at more than 450 airshows, he has won numerous aerobatic competitions and received over 18 prestigious awards, including induction into the National Aviation Hall of Fame. Sean amazes audiences with his high-energy routines. His original flying style and infectious personality have rocketed him to the top. In his performance, he flies the aircraft backwards, straight-down, tail-first at more than 100 mph. Over half of Sean's maneuvers are original and have never been duplicated by another aerobatic pilot.
