Biography of

Steve Jackovich

Steve was born June 12, 1956 in Newton, Iowa. He grew up and still resides in Bettendorf, IA and learned to fly in 1974 at the Davenport Municipal Airport, Davenport, IA where he is still based out of.  In 1991, Steve set the World Time-To-Climb record for the 3000M/Class C-1.a, Group I classification and held that record for five years until 1996. He has won numerous regional International Aerobatic Club competitions flying in the Unlimited category. Having flown in both the U.S. Nationals Aerobatic Championships held in Texas as well as the International Aerobatic Club Championships of the Americas held at Fondulac, Wisconsin each year, along with flying in the prestigious Fondulac Cup Invitational Event, Steve hopes to someday gain a team member slot on the U.S. Aerobatic Team and have a chance to represent the United States and compete at a World Aerobatic Championships event usually held in Europe. Steve is also employed full time as a machinist at ALCOA Davenport Works and is currently not married. He has been flying airshows for several years whenever his busy schedule will allow him the time. His one and only crew member is his brother Dennis Jackovich.

  The Can-Am Super Pitts

Airshow and Competition Airplane The plane Steve Jackovich uses for both competition flying and when he set the World Time-To-Climb record was built by Rich Bastian of Burns, Wyoming and weighs in at an amazingly low 785 pounds when empty. This highly modified Pitts S1 hybrid is powered by a Lycoming AEIO-360 on steroids, putting out 230+ horsepower while swinging a German made MT composite constant speed aerobatic propeller.  The wings were designed and built in Canada by former Canadian Aerobatic Champion Gordon Price. They produce a phenomenal unprecedented cosmic roll rate, which combined with all the other aerodynamic refinements and outstanding power to weight ratio, allow for a superb, original and unforgettable airshow performance.
