The letter below was sent to us by Test Pilot Skip Holm, first to take the RA-2 Advanced Acrobatic Aircraft into the sky. Skip is one of the USAF’s most decorated pilots with a world record of 1,000 hours of combat time, he is also a world famous race pilot, holding many race records. We were honored to have him pilot the RA-2.

UNLIMITED ACROBATIC AIRCRAFT
The RA-2 new design, new acrobatic plane has arrived.
This machine of muscle and might, envisioned to be the envy of the upside-downside acrobatic world, is here in the make and model of the Rud Aero RA-2 all composite, all ready, all everything, gotta get me one newest plane to come alive in the US of A.
Rud Aero, which had given us a taste of what this magic machine would be like from the days of Oshkosh 2012, has given me the flight test cards, from which we have flown and thoroughly enjoyed the wring-out of this plane at Sebastian airfield in Florida.
Never has a job seemed so seemingly predestined, as we encountered very little obstacles in getting the envelope cleared, to which we have proudly re-established the dream of past years to say that this is the one, this is the one by which you also can meet and realize your dream.
A dream indeed, the RA-2 aircraft.
Thanks for the Flying.
