New Heritage Flight Pilot In 2018

Post by RyanS » Sun Jan 14, 2018 11:05 pm

The civilian side of the Heritage Flight is an extremely small group of people. From what I've heard there is also a strict age limit for pilots. With the tragic loss of Vlado last year, and many of the pilots getting closer to the limit, many of us began wondering if there would be any new pilots added to the program to keep it going, especially since Vlado was at virtually every midwest show.

Luckily, it sounds like Stuart Milson will be joining the program for the first time this year. He is rated in a number of warbirds, but the important ones for the Heritage Flight are the P-51 Mustang and P-47 Thunderbolt. He is also typed in the AD-1 Skyraider which may end up being involved in the HF.
