The Aerobatic Project

Starting the journey of learning to fly is one challenge but then immediately starting to learn how to be an aerobatic pilot without the comfort of a few hundred hours in the air is another. Lauren Richardson is that person who you look at and say "Are you crazy"?

Well I can tell you that she's not and she not only flies a Pitts Special in her spare time but also mountaineers amongst other activities and assists with mountain rescues.

That tells you that Lauren is made of tough stuff and we talk to her this week on Across The Pond on the Airplane Geeks podcast about her journey from low hour pilot to winning an aerobatic competition in her first year.

Having featured on Karlene Pettit's blog Flight To Success last week as the Fabulous Friday Flier, I think we can see that if Karlene rates Lauren then she's one to watch. So, listen in to what Lauren has to say about The Aerobatic ProjectThe Flight of the Bumblie and what its like to fly a Pitts Special. A real star in the making here and you heard it first on Across The Pond.

You can find Lauren on Twitter @Groovy_nut
