Yuichi Takagi and his Pitts S2C
Yuichi is a Certified Aircraft Mechanic (A&P), aerobatic competition judge for the Federation Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) and International Aerobatic Club (IAC), as well as chief judge / instructor for the Japanese Aerobatic Club. With more than 15 years of competition aerobatic flying experience, Yuichi’s precise flying and dynamic style make his classic Pitts S-2S dance across the sky.
Yuichi’s Pitts Special has oversized control surfaces and a tuned 330 HP engine which make this classic plane perform in a different dimension from other planes. With its iconic, traditional red and white paint, classic rounded wing tips and beautiful lines in the air and on the ground; the Pitts Special is a favorite among air show fans.
