An Aerobatic Pilot’s Best Friend

Art Scholl was an incredibly successful aerobatic pilot. He was a three-time member of the U.S. Aerobatic Team, a racer at the Reno Air Races, an airshow pilot, and a fixed base operator with an aerobatic school.

Success is always better when shared, and who better to share with than your four-legged best friend. Aileron, the majestically wind-swept dog in the picture below, often flew with Scholl in his deHavilland Chipmunk, riding on the wing as Scholl taxied on the runway or perched on his shoulder in the aircraft.
