How Did Rob Holland Become a Top Level Airshow Perfomer and Competition Pilot? At a young age Rob’s father took him to an airshow, and from that point on he knew that flying in airshows and entertaining the fans was what he wanted to do with his life. Rob attended Daniel Webster College where he learned to fly, and earned two bachelors degrees. He went on to work as a flight instructor, corporate pilot, and eventually opened his own aerobatic flight school. During this time Rob was honing his flying skills and quickly moving up through the ranks of competition flying. Flying his first airshow in 2002, he began the long journey of becoming a well-known, polished act. This has made it possible where now, he can book the shows he wants, get the media attention required for corporate sponsorship, and travel throughout North America, Central America, and the Carribean doing what he loves to do. Everyone always asks, but no, there was no pot of gold to get him started. He simply worked very hard, gave up everything else, stayed focused, and didn’t let anyone talk him out of it. Rob encourages others to do the same, whatever their dream may be.

ROB HOLLAND WINS 2013 U.S. NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP AND WORLD FREESTYLE TITLE!Rob Holland Ultimate Airshows is proud to announce that during the week of September 22nd, 2013 in Denison, TX, Rob Holland has once again successfully defended his title of United States National Unlimited Aerobatic Champion. Competing against the very best aerobatic pilots in the country, Rob won all three of the determining flights to bring home the gold medal. This is his third consecutive title flying his custom built MXS/RH aircraft - having won the national championship in 2011 and 2012 as well. In addition to dominating the ‘classic’ portion of the competition which is very structured and scored under tight guidelines, Rob also won the ‘4 minute freestyle’ flight which allows each competitor to be more creative, include tumbling maneuvers, use smoke, and fly their routine to choreographed music. Just two weeks after bringing home gold at the nationals, Rob won the 4 Minute Freestyle Title at the World Championships, also held in Texas this year. Some 60 competitors from around the globe gathered for the competition which also resulted in a Team Silver Medal for Team USA.

About - Rob Holland Ultimate AirshowsWe are a team who’s mission is to entertain millions of airshow fans in person each year; while promoting key sponsors and marketing partners to millions more people through television appearances, radio, newspaper, internet and other media outlets - using the airshow industry as the vehicle for this exposure. A typical season consists of between 15 to 20 shows, with 4 to 8 performances per show. During the weeks leading up to each show, local media outlets are contacted to arrange interviews, media flights, photo opportunities etc. The team arrives at each venue by the Wednesday before the show and takes care of media on Wednesday and Thursday. Friday is generally a full airshow practice day for VIP guests and again for the media. Saturday and Sunday are show days with the full audience in attendance. Attendance ranges from 40 thousand people to more than 1 million per weekend - - Airshows draw the largest number of spectators of any event in North America.
The performances consist of teaser acts, circling of the American flag at the beginning of shows, and the premiere solo act flown by Rob Holland, choreographed to music. Professional announcing by the Ultimate Airshows team during the performances allows us to capture the audiences attention and control the quality and message of our act; specifically to the exposure of the primary sponsor’s name and a brief commercial spot describing their service or product. Airshows have a uniquely universal appeal across many demographics. Families are able to enjoy an entire day together without breaking the bank. The lore of aviation and the mystery of flight intrigues young and old alike. While the performers provide entertainment and interact with the audience in a distinctly positive manner.
