The Pilot:

Tim Weber discovered aviation at the age of 13. Having moved within bicycling distance of Turf Soaring School in Phoenix, Arizona, it wasn't long before Tim was a regular visitor to the airport. By the time Tim was 14 years old he had gone from being the kid looking through the fence to becoming
a line-boy, trading work for flying lessons.

Tim's aptitude for flying was evident early on. Within a short time he had soloed in several different types of gliders and had begun exploring aerobatics. Since that time, Tim has flown a variety of aircraft including: Ultralights; WWII Stearmans; the legendary Pitts Special, the exotic Russian YAK 55M and several types of jets including the F-16. Tim's aggressive flying and natural ability have enabled him to become one of the top airshow performers in the United States.

In addition to flying, Tim's passion for music has grown through the years. A self-taught musician, by the age of 17 Tim was playing lead guitar in Phoenix night clubs. Since that time, Tim has incorporated his love of music into his airshow routines by writing and performing original music for his performances.

Tim is a popular guest on radio talk shows and is a frequent speaker for groups and school assemblies. He is an ICAS ACE ( aerobatic competency evaluator) and enjoys giving aerobatic rides and lessons in both gliders and powered aircraft. As a certified aircraft mechanic with an A&P/I.A. rating , Tim is able to maintain his own aircraft to the high level of standards that he feels is necessary for aerobatic flight.
