Dallas, TX based aerobatic pilot, Mike “Spanky” Gallaway, will take to the skies this October at the Wings Over Houston Airshow-FB

About Mike “Spanky” Gallaway:

Mike began flying aerobatics 25 years ago.  It was the fear of stalls that convinced Mike to take an aerobatics course. Since then, Mike has been a regular at the US National Aerobatic Championships, having earned a place on two US Advanced teams and two Unlimited Teams.

Today, Mike flies about 12 air shows per year in his modified Extra 300/SX. His routine is filled  with plenty of tumbles and snaps. He holds a surface waiver, so most of the action is close to the audience.

When Mike is not flying, you can see him on the announcer stand, in fact Mike has been the commentator for the Red Bull Air Race World Series since its inception. He has literally been around the globe with Red Bull, having narrated in 16 races. In addition to flying , Mike is a licensed skydiver having made over 250 jumps.

This will be “Spanky’s” first time flying the Wings Over Houston Airshow. Let’s give him a big “Houston hello” when he makes his way to Ellington Airport. We can’t wait for you to see his explosive, high energy, aerobatics! Is it October yet!?

Check out this 30 second teaser of “Spanky” tearing up the Galveston skies:

Don’t Miss “Spanky” in October!

In addition to the phenomenal military pilots and demonstration teams, we’re very fortunate to have some of the best civilian pilots in the world flying at the 2023 CAF Wings Over Houston Airshow on October 14th & 15th.

Remember there’s only one place to get up close to all the aviation action, that’s at the Airshow!
