As stated on Prices website, Air Shows across the USA bring out 20,000,000 spectators annually, a bigger attendance than major league baseball, and with his intense air show performance schedule, it is no doubt that many of those spectators have had the privilege of watching Renny Price in the air. From his base just south of Portland, Oregon at the Aurora State Airport, Price tours the country performing a stunning aerobatic display in his Sukhoi-29 as both president and founder of Hammerhead Aerobatics.
It has been quite a journey for Price over the years in the aviation field. After his first flight in 1969, Price continued his career becoming an accomplished Airbus A320 captain for a major commercial airline. With over 25 years in commercial jets and his numerous winning achievements as a competitive aerobatic pilot, Price has over 23,000 hours in the air. After his retirement as a commercial pilot, Price continued his aviation career as a private pilot, flying an Astra jet for clients around the country when he is not busy dazzling air show attendees.
Not only does Price hold FAA ratings as both an Airline Tranport Pilot and Flight Engineer, he also holds an FAA rating as a Multi-engine instrument flight instructor. When he is not flying aerobatics, he enjoys teaching others as an IAC certified aerobatics instructor in his SU-29. Russian designed and built, the Sukhoi-29 is a two-seater composite aircraft renown for its unlimited competition abilities. Beyond the speed and power, however, Price says its the crowd enthusiasm and passion for aviation that continues to drive him in each performance.
