With four ailerons that span almost the entire length of the wings, the Wolf Pitts has a dizzying roll rate of over 360 degs per sec!
The Wolf Pitts Pro is truly a unique aircraft designed for one purpose in mind......aerobatics!
With Paul at the controls, this biplane is capable of some really wild manoeuvres that you are unlikely to see reproduced by another aircraft.
