Goodyear to Supply Aerobatic Pilot’s Tyres
Goodyear has announced that it has put pen to paper on an agreement to supply Flight Custom III tires for Patty Wagstaff Airshows’ Cirrus Extra 300S aircraft.
Pierre Jambon, the general manager of Goodyear’s Global Aviation business says that, “Patty Wagstaff is widely recognized as the world’s premier female aerobatic pilot. We are thrilled that she has chosen to help promote Goodyear, and we look forward to a long collaboration.”
Wagstaff has been selected for the U.S. Aerobatic Team six times, having won gold, silver and bronze medals in international aerobatic competition. She was the first woman to become U.S. National Aerobatic champion and one of the few people to claim that particular victory on three occasions. Wagstaff regularly amazes audiences with her spectacular routines at airshow events across the U.S. and in Canada.
She states: “I am happy to be affiliated with the world’s largest supplier of aviation tyres and am looking forward to being part of the Goodyear team.”
“Patty’s gruelling schedule and exciting routines demand performance from every part of her aircraft, and that includes long-lasting, high quality tires,” states an impressed Eric Varndell, Goodyear’s global marketing manager for aviation tyres. “Goodyear’s Flight Custom III tires are reinforced with an extra layer of aramid, and its unique design helps provide more landings. It’s the only general Aviation tire that has this added toughness.”
