Pitts Aerobatic Aircraft Exhibit
Shows many Pitts aircraft from building to flying
This is the worlds most successful aerobatic aircraft. First built by Curtis Pitts using a 65 hp engine which he though would be excessive power, the Pitts is now built using engines with horsepower ratings of 450 hp and more. You too can build a Pitts aircraft in your own garage.

Dear Jeff,
Thank you for including me as a contributor. The Glenn Curtis Museum is amazing, they continue to build replicas of Curtis's early aircraft and fly them. The lake that the museum is near, Lake Keuka, is where the worlds first water take-off and landings were made. They typically reenact them with replica's (using original Curtis engines) during the annual seaplane homecoming.  David Burke
