Chefpitts Airshows - Clemens Kuhlig of Chefpitts Airshows, flies a Pitts S1S that he built in his garage over a three year period while he was working as a professional Chef.The show he flies is inspired by the pilots he watched when he was a kid. The Pitts Special is an iconic airplane that lends itself well to beautiful rolling, curving lines,  snap rolls,  and excellent outside capability. You'll see all of these elements blended together over the course of the show, including cutting in and out of the show line to show depth.
