Bob Carlton | EAA AirVenture Oshkosh Air Show Performer

BOB CARLTON

Aircraft: Super Salto Jet Sailplane and SubSonex MicroJet

Bob Carlton does a stunning performance in his Super Salto jet sailplane. With its military-grade 250-pound-thrust PBS TJ-100 jet engine, the Super Salto self-launches and performs a high-speed aerobatic climb to altitude without a tow plane, followed by a spectacular exhibition of graceful sailplane aerobatics. The Super Salto sailplane is the only sailplane on the airshow circuit capable of performing a low-level, jet-powered air show performance.

Bob is a retired rocket scientist known for creating spectacular one-off designs. He has been flying since 1979 and has experience across the board in aviation, from hang gliders to sailplanes, helicopters, and airplanes. He is always working on the next great project!
