I actually have zero Pitts time. Finding one to get in locally has been impossible which is why I think getting one on the market to rent and give instruction in would work well. I have heard of Bill before and he was on my short list of instructors. Thanks for the recommedation! For myself, I have about 10,000 hours with about 1,000 dual given and about 5,000 jet between the BE-400 and HS-125.

I realized that this aircraft would do EXACTLY what you told it to do.... But it would eat your lunch if you told it to do something wrong. It was the most honest aircraft I had ever flown, but if your input was wrong, you would pay the penalty...garbage in… garbage out. I was soaked in sweat when I got out of that Pitts. Ron didn't say much as he started cleaning off the leading edges of the wings with cleaner. I walked into the hangar in my soggy flight suit with my flight helmet hanging from my hand wondering if I was going to be able to make the grade. I didn’t feel like a 12,000 hour airline pilot…I felt like a student pilot.
And that's before you start getting to grips with inverted flat spins, and crossovers...all perfectly recoverable, but a bit of a surprise first time round....
Hamilton Khaki Pilot Pioneer (this one in quartz, due to budget and piddly wrists, but a lovely watch, a reissue of a 1970s design produced for the RAF).
