... The two-story, 5,000-square-foot structure offers a premium hospitality experience at select Sprint Cup events and caters to distinguished guests with its clean and contemporary style, superior food and drink and up-close view of on-track action. Other Red Bull Energy Station stops include Texas in April and the 600 weekend at Charlotte.
And guests at the Energy Station will have an excellent view of pre-race activities behind the backstretch that include the Red Bull's aerobatic helicopter and stunt plane.
Piloted by veteran Chuck Aaron — the only pilot licensed in the United States by the Federal Aviation Administration to perform aerobatics once reserved for fixed-wing aircraft — the stock BO-105 CBS helicopter will perform stunts such as the Split-S, Immelman and Half Cuban Eight. At the controls of the stunt plane will be Kirby Chambliss, a two-time Red Bull Air Race World Series champion and winner of four U.S. national aerobatic titles.
And making an entrance from a northerly direction will be the Red Bull Air Force, with skydivers including Luke Aikins, John DeVore, Othar Lawrence, Sean MacCormac and Jeffrey Provenzano.

The Quiet Birdmen from Aviation Solutions
I was honored when  author Steve Barton sent me a signed copy of his latest novel: The Quiet Birdmen. I'm an avid reader and enjoy reading several novels a month. The Quite Birdmen has it all. Set in Europe during WWII it's a true and revealing story of a group of German airmen's actions during the war.  I don't want to give much of the plot away so I won't say much more than to highly recommend that you read this book wether you are an aviator or not you will find it riveting.
