DENISON, TX. — Less than a month after securing an unprecedented third consecutive World Freestyle Aerobatic gold at the World Aerobatic championships in France, Rob Holland won his fifth straight US National Aerobatic title at the 2015 IAC US Nationals Championship in Texas. Flying the Window World MXS-RH, Holland also secured his sixth National Four-Minute Freestyle gold medal.
Held at the North Texas Regional Airport in Denison, Texas, the six-day contest featured the best aerobatic pilots from all across the United States. Despite strong competition, Holland took the title by almost 700 points and became the only pilot ever to record five National titles in consecutive years of competition.
“It is a bit surreal and truly an honor,” said Holland. “I attribute my success this year to the help, support, and kindness of the Window World Family, my marketing partners, and of course my family and friends.” Window World is the prime sponsor of Rob Holland Ultimate Airshows’ 2015 season. “On behalf of Window World, we congratulate Rob on his extraordinary accomplishments,” said Todd Woods, Vice President of Marketing and Market Development of Window World.
Holland’s championship winning performance at Nationals comes only a few weeks after achieving a third-straight World Freestyle Aerobatic gold medal representing Team U.S.A. at the 28th World Aerobatic Championships in Châteauroux-Déols, France. Although competing against 14 of the best freestyle aerobatic pilots in the world, Holland’s margin of victory was substantial, taking home the gold medal by nearly 300 points.
