On March 20, 2016 I flew the Sunbird S-1x, an experimental variant of the Pitts S1 biplane to an altitude of 24,500' in the restricted airspace over the Barry M. Goldwater Range in Yuma, Arizona then entered an inverted flat spin. At an altitude of 2,000' the recovery was initiated and the Sunbird smoothly returned to level flight at 1,200'. A new world record of 98 inverted flat spins crushed the previous Guinness World Record of 81 set by me in 2014: Guinness World Record.
