Sport Aerobatics is the monthly magazine for the International Aerobatic Club.
It’s a pretty good read. Of all the magazines I get — and there are quite a few of them — I like this one the most. It’s the smallest, but the content is right up my alley. “Let’s talk about aerobatics!”. The magazine is also one of the things IAC is trying to improve upon because it serves IAC’s two constituencies: competition pilots and those who fly aerobatics recreationally.
The magazine has a pretty, glossy cover. But don’t be fooled, the total membership in IAC is only 4,500 people. I’d be surprised if they print more than 6,000 copies of each issue. It’s a small club, unfortunately. I say unfortunately because a few vocal people out there that hate airplanes and would be glad to see aerobatics banned. Our only sure defense relies on strength in numbers.
Anyway, every month they print a “personality profile” on one pilot. Guess who’s in the June issue?
