Patty Wagstaff is one of the most famous airshow pilots in history, but her aviation story includes so much more than just aerobatics. In this wide-ranging podcast episode, Patty talks about what’s going through her mind during an airshow, what pilots can learn from an upset recovery course, why she chose to fly as a wildfire spotter for Cal Fire, and why she loves flying in Africa. As you’ll hear, she has flown an incredible variety of airplanes. In the fast-paced “Ready to Copy” segment, Patty shares her favorite warbird, what pilots can learn from horses, and what it was like to grow up in Japan.
