Precision. Teamwork. Excellence.

The Aerostars are a precision aerobatic demo team whose aerial ballet captivates air show audiences large and small. They fascinate the crowd with a combination of graceful aerobatics flown in tight formation, spectacular breakaways followed by breath-taking opposing passes and awe-inspiring inverted maneuvers.

The team performs in the Yak 52TW, a former Soviet-designed, Romanian-built, WWII-type aerobatic trainer. The deep roar of their 400 horsepower, supercharged, nine cylinder radial engines singing in harmony is a true crowd pleaser. The Aerostar's performance is the embodiment of teamwork, professionalism, and commitment to excellence. Whether you need a feature act or a complement to the lineup for a major show, the Aerostars can light up the skies at your next event.

We are a proud sponsor!

It's the most fun you can have in a simulator with your clothes on. Now that we have your attention for a full minute, here's how it works.

Redbird Landing will create three interactive flying challenges and download them to Redbird simulators around the world. You go to one of these sims, log into your personal account, and fly them. If you rock the house, you'll get a high score and bragging rights with anyone who will listen. If your first attempt exhibits the skill of an inebriated kangaroo, no one will witness your shame. Not even an instructor; the challenges are flown solo on the simulator.

We are a corporate sponsor!

The blending of two passions, aviation and music, has led to the birth of the Flying Musicians Association, Inc., a non profit 501(C)(3) organization (EIN: 80-0433326).

FMA, founded in 2009, is an organization of pilots who are musicians, spanning the globe, proficiency levels and genres. The goal is to share our passions in order to inspire, educate, and encourage others by creating enthusiasm and promoting personal growth in aviation and music.

FMA fosters enthusiasm and growth through tireless efforts, given freely by members. Without enthusiasm and growth there will be no customers for products and services. Therefore, we encourage the industry to support ours as well as other organization's efforts.
