Jun 06, 2013 No Comments by

“Malibu” Chuck Aaron has the unique honor of being the only civilian pilot ever to be licensed to perform helicopter aerobatics in the U.S. — and one of only three in the entire world.

A former television stunt pilot, the San Antonio, Texas, native has worked with everyone from the U.S. Department of Defense to the Red Bull energy drink company, where he helped launch the Red Bull Helicopter program. Aaron answered a few questions for GO! magazine ahead of his upcoming demonstration at the OC Air Show in Ocean City, Md., this weekend.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
