The OC Air Show will feature Scott Francis, a high energy aerobatic performer who will be flying in the OC Air Show for the first time ever on June 16-17 over the beach and boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland.

 

Scott Francis has been flying in airplanes for as long as he can remember. Born and raised in Wichita, KS, he flew often with his father who was an experimental test pilot. Scott received his private license in high school, and has gone on to earn his commercial, instrument, multi-engine, and Airline Transport Pilot certifications. He currently has over 3,000 logged hours in more than 40 types of aircraft.

 

Scott began flying aerobatics and competing in aerobatic competitions in 2003. He rapidly moved up from Sportsman level, to Intermediate, Advanced, and finally the top level — Unlimited. Scott has been performing in airshows since 2006, starting with a Pitts S-1T, then moving on to a Giles 202, and currently flying the ultra-high performance MXS aircraft.

 

Today, Scott possesses a surface level aerobatic waiver and flies in more than 30 airshows each year. He particularly enjoys interacting with spectators before and after each show. When he isn’t flying an “away show”, he can be seen performing at the Flying Circus in Bealeton, VA every Sunday from May through October.
