The Kennedy Airshow is a high performance aerobatic flight featuring one of the top performing aerobatic airplanes in the world: the Staudacher S600. The unique wing and brute power of this custom made unlimited class monoplane allows Martin to fly amazing manuevers linking tumbles, snaps, flat spins and lomcovoks in a dynamic, hard hitting flight. The energy and physicality of the plane and pilot are ideally matched, and present a unique performance of uninhibited flight and exploration of the extreme edge of the flight.

Kennedy is commercially rated pilot who competes at the unlimited level of aerobatic competition (most advanced). He is
Australian, but resides in California where he is a Professor of
Geology at the University of California. The extreme physical stress
placed on him during this type of flight requires Martin to be in top
physical condition. Not only does he fly daily to keep his flight
skills honed, but trains as a competitive marathon runner.
