Kent Pietsch in his 1942 Interstate Cadet, flies a
comedy act, which includes extreme maneuvers, such as

reducing the wingspan 14 feet to become a Clipped-Wing

aerobatics in a home built we call a Schnortenzummer@.
The acts have a combination of classic and gyroscopic
aerobatic maneuvers. Both acts will demand your attention

Many shows have utilized various combinations of the
acts. For your airshow, you may hire one, some, or all of our acts.
