DENISON, TX. In a run equaled by no other pilot in history, Rob Holland won his sixth straight US National Aerobatic title at the 2016 IAC US National Championships in Texas. Flying in his MXS-RH, Holland also secured an unprecedented seventh National Four-Minute Freestyle gold medal. Holland’s championship-winning performance at Nationals places him in elite company as one of the most celebrated and decorated aerobatic pilots in US history.

Held at the North Texas Regional Airport in Denison, Texas, the six-day contest features the best aerobatic pilots from all across the United States. Challenged with strong competition, Holland scored his sixth consecutive title in dramatic fashion, coming from behind with a stunning performance in his final flight to clinch gold. Holland’s performance also earned him a place on the US Aerobatic Team who will compete at the World Aerobatic Championships in South Africa in 2017.

"There are some amazingly talented pilots flying at the Nationals and I'm honored to share the sky with them,” said Holland of his championship win. “I just want to keep evolving and growing as an aerobatic pilot and I'm humbled that my hard work has placed me at the top. It has been a team effort and I can't thank enough all the incredible people who have helped me in so many ways".

Holland’s win at Nationals adds further luster to his already exceptional competition record. Recent gold medals at the FAI World Air Games in Dubai and the Sky Grand Prix of Aerobatics in South Africa bring his total medals in international competition to 19, including eight golds. His seven National Freestyle championships, three World Freestyle championships, and six National Aerobatic titles are all feats accomplished by no other aerobatic pilot in history.
