This is John’s 6th year competing at Top Gun and his 7th year competing strictly in scale. Prior to entering into scale, he flew in IMAC in the North Central region for 7 years.

The first six years at Top Gun John flew in the Pro Am classes, winning the Am class his second year, and  in the Pro class the following year with his big impressive Pitts S1. This season John is campaigning  his Skymaster in the Masters/Designers class. Nothing like diving into the deep end!
