Nicolas Ivanoff (1st) was sensational in the air today, showing just how good he can be when he’s fully focused on the track.

Airspeed Video Teaser from Airspeed by Stephen Force (Steve Tupper)
Will Hawkins of Wilco Films and A Pilot's Story has begun to create a monster. Namely me.

But I'll also try to load in bits of video from other experiences this summer and try to do at least a couple of bits of aerobatic video. Stay tuned as Airspeed just gets better and better!
