VACAVILLE, Calif. -Travis Credit Union (TCU) has taken sponsorship to new heights. TCU has recently sponsored stunt pilot Bill Cornick and his "Super" Pittts S-2C as a featured flight demonstration in Travis Air Force Base's Air Expo 2005. "Travis Credit Union continues to support our long-standing affiliation with Travis Air Force Base's Air Expo," said TCU President/CEO Patsy Van Ouwerkerk. "Members from Travis Air Force Base are the foundation of this credit union. As we continue to grow, Travis Credit Union remains loyal to the original institution that made it all possible." Cornick, who was available for photos and autographs at the TCU booth immediately following his performance, began flying in the U.S. Air Force in 1953. Unofficially named the "Grandad of Professional Aerobatics" he began performing in air shows in 1980 and has thrilled crowds at numerous air shows throughout the western United States. Flying his custom designed "Super" Pitts S-2C through a series of inverted flat spins, multiple snap rolls, torque rolls, lomcevaks, the "pin-wheel" double hammerhead, and low-level knife-edge flight Cornick was an instant hit with attendees. These and many other spectacular aerobatic maneuvers are choreographed to music to provide maximum entertainment with competition precision and the highest level of safety. The free event also included performances by the USAF Thunderbirds and the USAFA Wings of Blue skydiving team. Also featured was a B-2 Spirit multi-role bomber and F-117A Nighthawk, ground displays of several military and vintage aircraft, and demonstrations by the California National Guard Air Assault Team and the Travis Security Forces Canine Unit.
