Aaron Fitzgerald

Aaron grew up in Wenatchee – which is home to a USFS Tanker base – watching airplanes and helicopters overhead as they fought fires in the surrounding mountains. Seeing these aircraft in the skies all summer instilled in him a strong desire to fly. Aaron has primarily focused on flying for the film and television industry; he has performed and filmed for over 100 films and television shows. Besides this he has also flown in various other capacities such as utility flying in mountainous terrain and offshore support. For a short time he is member of our the helicopter team and is representing The Flying Bulls in the United States.

Kirby Chambliss

Kirby Chambliss is one of the best aerobatic pilots in the world – a five-time winner of the US National Aerobatic Championship and a former Men’s Freestyle World Champion. He’s also fast, world-class fast; Kirby is one of only two American pilots ever to win the Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Kirby and his Red Bull Edge 540 race plane must sustain a radical span of 18 Gs, so he follows a rigorous exercise regimen of skydiving and motocross to stay in shape.
