Scott in the cockpit of his Giles 202
In 2003, after flying more or less straight and level for 18 years, Scott got the itch to do something different. He took a few aerobatic flying lessons and the hook was set. Less than a year later he purchased a Pitts Special and began competing at the Sportsman Level in International Aerobatic Club sanctioned aerobatic contests. In 2004 he moved up to Intermediate Level aerobatic competition, flying at 5-6 contests per year. In 2006 Scott began flying with the Flying Circus, performing in the “Super Acro” slot. Scott sold his beloved Pitts in 2007 and purchased the plane he currently flies – a Giles 202 carbon fiber monoplane – and moved up to Advanced Level competition.
In his "real life", Scott is Senior Systems Engineer for Argon ST, a Boeing Company. He is also President of the Washington Area Chapter of the International Aerobatic Club.
