Air-to-air with Sammy Mason banner


Sammy Mason is a young aerobatic pilot that has won aerobatic competitions and is on his third season of airshow performances. His first airshow performance was at Santa Paula in the powered glider at the age of 16. The next year, he was thrilling audiences in the Stearman. Sammy's current mount is the Pitts S-1S. Sammy is the grandson of Sammy Mason, and aerobatic performer of the late 1940s and test pilot.

For this photo shoot, Sammy's mother, Rowena, flew the photo ship (Stearman). The whole family are pilots and involved in aviation. We all look forward to seeing many of the airshow performances Sammy has ahead. My personal thanks goes out to the Mason family for their hospitality and for the opportunity to photograph this talented young man.
