Meet Vic.

Vic Erickson was one of our legendary pilots. He flew Corsairs in the pacific during WWII, set the record for the longest flight, and flew the “Sunsetter” (Corsair) that currently resides in the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum. His exciting stories left an impression on us, and we’d like to share them for others to enjoy.

Vic is just the start. Everyone has a story! Enter here to meet our Aitkin Flyers. We expect this section will be ever expanding as we continue to honor our members.
