Meet Luke Penner

Luke lives for aerobatics. A Manitoban through-and-through, he has been a pilot and flight instructor since 2003. Three years later, he began flying aerobatics in a Pitts S2B bi-plane and went on to compete successfully in international aerobatics for which he is often on the podium.

Some of Luke’s accomplishments include Winner of Sportsman U.S. 2016 National Championships, Intermediate 2017 Mid-West Aerobatic Championships and 2018 Intermediate Canadian National Aerobatic Championships.

As a flight instructor, Luke has trained hundreds of commercial pilots who have gone on to work for airlines all over the world. His passion does centre around aerobatics, however, and over the years, he has given over a thousand aerobatic Rides of Your Life!  

Luke is constantly pushing himself as a pilot and aerobatics competitor and being part of the experience of helping people tick that “flying upside down” off their bucket lists continues to be a rewarding highlight for him.
