We're building a biplane. In our garage, at home...
That high performance biplane is the Pitts S-1-11B, which will become the second only of its type in the UK, with only a handful flying worldwide.
Why? Because we love Pitts Specials. Their history, their character, and the way they fly. The "Super Stinker" was designed by Curtis Pitts to compete with the carbon monoplanes, and we plan to continue his vision by keeping biplanes competitive in Advanced aerobatic competitions in the UK.
We are two brothers with a passion for aviation who enjoy building, maintaining, and flying aircraft. The Wright Brothers aircraft first flew in 1903, and a little over 100 years later the Cartwright Brothers will be doing the same.
Flying since 2009, Alex is a seasoned competition pilot currently flying BAeA Intermediate competitions all over the UK in a Pitts S-2E, G-KITI.
An active member of the Shropshire Aero Club, Alex can often be found practicing for competitions up in the skies above Shropshire.
Often found upside down inside the back of an aircraft, Scott is an aircraft engineer who maintains and builds a variety of aircraft.
When not working on aircraft, Scott is either out on his mountain bike or travelling the country taking photos.
