Until you've flown the new Pitts S-2C, there's no way to fully comprehend the way we have harnessed the power, expanded the performance envelope, locked in a new level of precision and taken the lead in aerobatic flying technology.
This new breed of Pitts Specials, our only production model, more than meets the demands of today's aerobatics. We have brought trumpets into the aerobatic box, heralding a new athleticism, a sinuous grace, a vibrant form of aerobatic energy. For contests, airshows, training, or pure excitement the Pitts S-2C sizzles and dazzles.
Vertical lines are where the S-2C beats them all. You have never seen the kind of hang time that's possible in an S-2C. After improving the wing tip shape, flattening the belly, improving the engine cowling and redesigning the windshield, this model cruises 15 mph faster than the earlier model. Precision point rolls are possible at any speed thanks to the new wings and world class stick centering. The new aerodynamic vertical and horizontal tails make maneuvering in any direction a snap.
The two-place Pitts Special S-2B can be flown competitively in unlimited class competition. It is ideal for advanced aerobatic instruction and is our most popular model. Most students who have learned in slower, less responsive aerobatic aircraft find the Pitts simply requires less work to perform maneuvers accurately. Put simply, Pitts pilots have more fun!
The S-2B is obviously capable of highly advanced maneuvers, yet is easy enough to fly for pilots just beginning their aerobatic training. The S-2B has been superceded by the S-2C and is no longer in production. However, Aviat Aircraft carries a full line of original manufacturer's spare parts.
The concept is simple: Curtis Pitts sat down and designed the airplane he thought was necessary for World Aerobatic Contest level flying into the next millennium. What makes the S-1-11B/Super Stinker different from his earlier world beating designs? 300 horses and 35 years more experience is what makes the difference.
After Aviat Aircraft, Inc. purchased the design, our engineers straightened out a few cosmetic lines to make the airplane easier to judge in competition and reengineered the structure for strength and pilot comfort.
We offer both plans and components (not a kit, just components) for this model. We can also complete the aircraft on a custom basis.
Similar to the S-2B in size and power, but in single-place configuration. This is the most recent addition to the single-place line. The Pitts Special S-2S provides superior vertical penetration and high speed.
The S-2S is no longer in production. However, Aviat Aircraft carries a full line of original manufacturer's spare parts.
Small and powerful with extremely high performance, particularly with respect to both aileron-roll rate and snap-roll rate. The Pitts Special S-1T is regularly used in all competition categories in both national and world contests.
The S-1T is available for manufacture on demand. Production plans are not available. However, plans for the Pitts S-1S are available for purchase for $250.00. In addition, Aviat Aircraft carries a full line of original manufacturer's spare parts.
