Goodyear Aviation to Sponsor Aerobatic Champion Patty Wagstaff

AKRON, Ohio – The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company announces that it has reached agreement with Patty Wagstaff Airshows Inc., to supply Flight Custom III tires for Wagstaff’s Cirrus Extra 300S aircraft.

“Patty Wagstaff is widely recognized as the world’s premier female aerobatic pilot,” says Pierre Jambon, General Manager of Goodyear’s Global Aviation Business. “We are thrilled that she has chosen to help promote Goodyear, and we look forward to a long collaboration.”

Wagstaff is a six-time member of the U.S. Aerobatic Team. She has won the gold, silver and bronze medals in international aerobatic competition. She is the first woman to win the title of U.S. National Aerobatic champion, and one of the few people to win it three times. She performs her spectacular routines at airshow events across the U.S. and in Canada.

“I am happy to be affiliated with the world’s largest supplier of aviation tires and am looking forward to being part of the Goodyear team,” says Wagstaff.

“Patty’s grueling schedule and exciting routines demand performance from every part of her aircraft, and that includes long-lasting, high quality tires,” says Eric Varndell, Goodyear’s Global Marketing Manager for Aviation Tires. “Goodyear’s Flight Custom III tires are reinforced with an extra layer of aramid, and its unique design helps provide more landings. It’s the only general Aviation tire that has this added toughness.”
