Who Is Aaron Fitzgerald?


Aaron grew up in Wenatchee – which is home to a USFS Tanker base – watching airplanes and helicopters overhead as they fought fires in the surrounding mountains. Seeing these aircraft in the skies all summer instilled in him a strong desire to fly. Aaron has primarily focused on flying for the film and television industry; he has performed and filmed for over 100 films and television shows.


Besides this he has also flown in various other capacities such as utility flying in mountainous terrain and offshore support. He is part of the RedBull helicopter team since 2018 and is representing them in the USA as an airshow-pilot for helicopter aerobatics at the Red Bull North-America.
