Rob Holland Wins Tenth National Aerobatic Championship

Placed First In Known, First In Unknown And First In Free

This week, ICAS member and air show performer Rob Holland (pictured, right, with IAC's Mike Heuer) won his tenth consecutive U.S. National Aerobatic Championship in Salina, Kansas.

After winning his first unlimited national aerobatic championship in Denison, Texas in September of 2011, Holland has won every one since. (The National Aerobatic Championships were not held in 2020 due to the pandemic.) No other aerobatic pilot has won as many unlimited championships. And, other than Rob, only the legendary Leo Loudenslager won as many as seven.

Flying his MXS monoplane in this week's competition, Holland placed first in Known, first in Unknown and first in Free, with an overall score of 11,67.87/82.23% for the event.

Holland describes his MXS-RH as "...the MXS-RH is a one-of-a-kind, all carbon-fiber masterpiece. This single seat, competition and airshow - ready aircraft is designed and built by MX Aircraft in North Carolina, and incorporates design modifications suggested by Rob himself. Powering this aerobatic monster is a Lycoming engine producing 380 horsepower. Weighing in at a minimal 1200 pounds, this state-of-the-art aerobatic masterpiece boasts astonishing performance, is capable of pulling 16 positive and negative Gs, and rolls at nearly 500 degrees per second."

"It's been a long road and a lot of hard work, but I just won my tenth consecutive US National Aerobatic Championship," Rob wrote at the end of the competition. "I can't thank my sponsors, family and friends enough for their never-ending support, love, and encouragement."
