Jason Flood was born in the little town of Franklinville New Jersey in 1990. Born into an aviation family, Jason was exposed to flying at a very early age. He began flying with his dad at only 6 months old. His father was an avid aviator who enjoyed buying and restoring various aircraft. 

Flying throughout his youth with his father in the family Beechcraft Staggerwing, Jason often found himself at EAA AirVenture, the world’s largest aviation gathering. With so much hands-on experience in aviation, it wasn’t long before Jason found himself hooked. Spending a lot of time in the air with his father, Jason gained a great deal of experience at the controls.

Jason’s family was no stranger to the Pitts Special. When he was barely a teenager, his brother and father had already restored and flown several different models of Pitts aircraft.He went on at the age of 17 to learn aerobatics and started competing in various aerobatics circuits in a newer Pitts S-1S that he flies today. 

Jason currently flies a Pitts S-1S built by Stewart Aeroplane Factory of Godley, Texas. The aircraft has many modifications and deviations from a stock S-1S. Most notably are the modified ailerons, wing tips and an extended rudder length. The aircraft features an overhauled Ly-Con AEIO-360 engine rated at 245HP. Many internal modifications were also made to strengthen areas of the wings and fuselage. A complete listing of the aircraft modifications will be posted in the future.
