In this episode my guest is Red Bull Air Race pilot, Patrick Davidson. Patrick grew up in Port Elizabeth in and around flying. His father Stewart is also a world-class pilot, and exposed Patrick to flying from a very young age.
At 12 years old, Patrick won his first contest, flying with a safety pilot. He later competed solo on his 17th birthday.
Patrick is a five-time South African Aerobatic Champ and joined the Red Bull Air Race Challenger series in 2018. He managed to earn a couple of pole positions and several podium positions during his first season.
What a great chat about discipline and perseverance. Please join this conversation as we discuss all things flying, from flying with Dad, flying competition aerobatics, flying war-birds to the Red Bull Air Race series and the future of Air Racing.
