Pedro Tolomei was born in 1980. Aviation was not in Pedro’s family but he has always loved airplanes ever since he was a small child. His biggest dream was always to become an Airshow Performer and an Aerobatic Competition Pilot. He watched the movie Cloud Dancer and his drive and determination to persue his passion to one day own his very own Pitts Special became very real and he never gave up.
Thru growing up Pedro flew hang gliders and Skydived. He then obtained his ATP License for airplanes and helicopters and to this day he flys a Helicopter for a corporate company in Brazil. Finally he was financially able to take a step forward to seeing his dream fulfilled and he purchased his very own Bi-plane…a Christian Eagle II. It was during this purchase of his Christian Eagle that his friendship with Jason Newburg was formed.
Jason disassembled the Christian Eagle in the USA and prepared the shipment to Brazil in 2013.
Pedro then sold his Christian Eagle to buy the aircraft of his dreams … he purchased a Pitts S2C. He then started to fly with Jason Newburg to improve his skills.
After 3 years of critique and training with Jason he was asked to join the Viper Airshow Team.
I am very grateful for the mentoring and friendship that I have with Jason Newburg.
Jason gave Pedro the opportunity to live his dream!
