Patty Wagstaff Named To Excalibur 421 Leadership Team

Will Be Demonstration Pilot And Marketing Consultant

Legendary aerobatic champion Patty Wagstaff has joined the Aviation Alliance (Alliance) Excalibur 421 leadership team. Wagstaff will be the demonstration pilot for the Excalibur 421 and will be responsible for overseeing the transition training program for clients as well as pilot in command of several planned attempts at world record flight for twin-engine aircraft. She will also serve as an in-house marketing consultant.

The Excalibur 421 features a remanufactured Cessna 421 airframe upgraded with Pratt & Whitney PT6A-135A turboprop engines. It also includes an extensive custom Garmin avionics suite and a new-generation interior cabin. Tires, brakes, de-icing, hydraulics and electrical systems are also all new.

“Patty Wagstaff has received every conceivable award in civilian aviation and is a world-recognized spokesperson for general aviation, we are thrilled to have someone with her flying expertise involved with the Excalibur 421,” said Jack Pelton, Aviation Alliance managing director of operations.

In July 2004, Patty was inducted into the National Aviation Hall of Fame. She is also a six-time recipient of the “First Lady of Aerobatics” Betty Skelton Award. Most recently, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Air Force Association, was inducted into the EAA/IAC Hall of Fame and was presented the NAA/99’s Katharine Wright Award. “I’m looking forward to using my experience to help make the Excalibur 421 a superior, cost-effective aircraft for my fellow pilots and business aviation owner operators,” said Wagstaff.
