Bill Finagin
Bill was inducted into the IAC Aerobatic Hall of Fame in 2008. He earned his pilot's license in a 65-hp Aeronca Champion 7AC and has since gone onto accumulate a total of over 18,000 hours of which 10,000 of them are in Pitts aircraft. Bill flew the single-seat Pitts for four years, beginning in 1981. In 1985, it was time to move up, so Bill bought a factory-new ’86 S-1T and put his S-1S up for sale. Bill became a Pitts dealer about the same time he purchased the S-1T. In order to teach students the finer points of flying the Pitts, Bill purchased a two-seat S-2B. Bill Finagin is widely recognized as one of the best acro/spin/upset instructors anywhere. He will teach normal, flat, accelerated, and crossover emergency spin recovery in both upright and inverted modes.
