Pitts S2S

The Viper was built for a specific mission. It is an AIRSHOW aircraft designed to entertain and leave a lasting impression in the hearts and minds of the airshow audience.

Many successful entertainers have used the Pitts S2S as a foundation to build the best AIRSHOW aircraft in the industry. The Viper has taken all the years of evolution and wrapped it in to one aircraft. The fuselage, wings, ailerons, cowling, tail surfaces, landing gear, instrumentation, fuel and oil system have all been redesigned, and built with performance and reliability as the prime objectives. The engine is a "new" Lycoming AEIO540EXP which was disassembled and rebuilt to our exacting specifications. The propeller is a MT built in Germany (Model MTV-9-BC-203-20D).

The aircraft has the Viper theme which distinguishes it's self from all other AIRSHOW aircraft and performers. The paint supplied by PPG is a premium finish with effects that are out of this world. As the sun reflects at differing angles the metallic base shows it's complexity flashing tones of gold and blue.
