The Phillips 66 Aerostars have been performing together, side by side, just a few feet from one another, at around 250 miles per hour, for more than a decade. And they will be performing during the 2018 Spirit of St. Louis Air Show & STEM Expo in October.
Flying their new Extra 300L aircraft, the four-ship team performs breathtaking barrel rolls, graceful formation loops, and dramatic opposing maneuvers.
The Phillips 66 Aerostars seek to “inspire young people throughout our shows to get involved and get that fire for aviation careers burning again,” pilot Paul “Rocket” Hornick recently told the AOPA. “There’s a lot of money to be made nowadays in aviation, and it’s a good time to be a pilot.”
The 2018 Spirit of St. Louis Air Show & STEM Expo takes place October 13-14, 2018! Tickets go on sale in May. Tickets will only be available online.
