Meet Kathy Hirtz, MD founder of  Wing Over Aerobatics LLC

Kathy Hirtz, MD is a general practice, sports medicine physician who took up flying at the age of 48.  She discovered her passion for aerobatic flying early while taking a spin recovery course prior to her first solo. She knew it was her thing after the first spin.  She went on to flying a Zlin 242L which is a Czech built aerobatic trainer with side by side seating and tricycle gear.  With the expert help of Steve Wolf her aerobatic instructor, she quickly outgrew the Zlin and went on to the Pitts S-2B.  

Kathy logged 400 hours her first year of flying! Taking instruction from aerobatic icon Sean D. Tucker , she learned how to tumble and has received her 500 foot aerobatic waiver from Wayne Handley.

Kathy performed in her first Airshow  at Arlington 2002. There she amazed the crowd with her highly skilled tumbling routine after only 16 months of flying. Kathy has competed successfully at both the Sportsman and Intermediate levels in IAC, International Aerobatic Club, events.   Kathy founded Wing Over Aerobatics LLC in order to offer a spin training course in the northwest United States.     Wing Over also offers aerobatic rides and full aerobatic training courses with instructor Steve Wolf.

Kathy now has over 1,000 hours flight time, the majority being aerobatic flight. She performed in 7 Airshows in 2003 including the Oregon International Airshow at Hillsboro and received her 250 foot waiver. She will be returning to Arlington in 2004 to perform daily at the 5 day Northwest EAA Fly-in for a third time. Her high powered routine includes tumbles, flat spins, torque rolls, double hammerheads as well as other interesting original maneuvers and is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat! Kathy also brings her husband/announcer world renown Airshow pilot and aircraft builder Steve Wolf. His commentary adds excitement and character to her performance. This combination is an act that you won't want to miss.
