Michael Pickin is the youngest Unlimited aerobatic pilot in the UK and the current British Advanced National Aerobatic Champion - the youngest National Champion the UK has ever seen.

Learning to fly at a young age and breaking many records along the way, Michael has won numerous aerobatic competitions and performed in air shows all over Europe. Now at just 24 years old he is one of the most accomplished aerobatic pilots around.

In 2015 Michael becomes the newest member of the Global Stars Formation Team flying formation and solo displays worldwide. When he is not flying vintage aircraft or high performance aerobatics, Michael keeps himself busy flying a Boeing 737-800.

An enviable aptitude for competition aerobatics from a very young age, a record breaking flying résumé and respect for vintage aircraft set the foundations for Michael Pickin to embark on a professional career as a commercial airline pilot. Achieving his goal at just 22 years old, Michael is now flying 737s as his dream day job and continues his passion for aerobatics as an air show display pilot and wing walking pilot in his spare time.

As the youngest pilot to achieve the Advanced National Aerobatic Champion title in the UK, Michael continues to set a high benchmark for his flying goals. Michael’s ultimate flying goal is to become the youngest person to represent the UK internationally at the highest level of aerobatics since competition flying began.

Michael Pickin offers potential sponsors a brand that is not only inspirational, but continually evolving.
