Stay tuned to see what we have in store for airplane flyovers!
Air Adventures Skydiving
What would an airshow be without skydivers falling from the sky? Our aerial events will kickoff with a professional skydiving team flying our nations colors gracefully to the ground.
Dan’s show features the Ultimate 10-200 Biplane. Designed by Gordon Price, the Ultimate is a unique biplane. Its four, full span ailerons provide a 400 degree per second roll rate. It also utilizes an aileron/elevator interconnect system that produces unique low speed flight characteristics. Dan enters his maneuvers at speeds of up to 250 MPH. Stressed for +/- 10 Gs, Dan operates the airplane at G loads of up to plus 7 and minus 6 G’s. With just the right balance of classic aerobatics, unique tumbles, tailslides, spins, and signature maneuvers, Dan’s show keeps the audience riveted from take-off to landing. In 2011 Dan added a knife-edge ribbon cut to his repertoire to the delight of spectators! Dan’s unique background in racing and aviation, his infectious enthusiasm, and his innate ability to become “one” with his machine captivate audiences wherever he performs.
Trevor is from Hamilton Ontario and lives on the airport that he grew up around, working on and flying airplanes with his father. Hamilton is a working class steel town and Trevor’s other job is a maintenance mechanic in a steel coating plant. Trevors airplane, the Javelin, is a one of a kind unlimited aerobatic airplane. Powered by a 360 cubic inch Lycoming engine, swinging a Whirlwind carbon fiber propeller. The airframe is a fabric covered welded steel structure and the wing is all wood. Because of the very specific quality requirements for aircraft grade lumber, a mill in British Columbia was contracted to harvest and mill a sitka spruce tree for the boards that would become the wing structure. The aircraft was completed in the summer of 2007 and towards the end, the project became such an obsession that Trevor would sleep in the hangar rather than go home at night.
By the time she was 32 years old, she decided she was tired of hearing herself say “I wish I could fly an airplane”. She enrolled in ground school and the rest is history, as they say. She earned her Private Pilot certificate in 1987 and shortly thereafter was introduced to the world of aerobatics. Shortly thereafter a friend offered her a ride in a Pitts Special and she jumped at the chance to do a different kind of flying. With that first flight of loops, rolls, spins and a few other very scary maneuvers, she was instantly hooked on aerobatics.
When most people turn 50, they figure it’s time to relax and settle into neutral while coasting toward retirement. Not Jacquie B! When Jacquie turned 50, she launched her solo aerobatic career with her one-of-a-kind Pitts Special biplane. During the centennial celebration of powered flight in 2003, Jacquie finally quit the humdrum of a white collar profession and realized her dream as an air show performer, becoming the first female pilot to enter this business at the age of 50.
RC Jet Demonstration
Ever see a remote controlled jet? Ever see one at 180 miles per hour? Come see the RC jet demonstration put on their own airshow with remotely controlled jets! After the show get up close and personal with these small aircraft and ask the pilots what goes into this awesome hobby.
Aircraft on Display
In addition to an awesome aerial show, we will have numerous aircraft on display on the ground too! This will allow you to get up close and personal with an actual airplane and talk to the pilots who fly them! Feel free to ask the pilot questions about flying, and maybe even sit in the pilot seat and see what it feels like to sit behind the controls!
This event will surely be fun for all ages! In between aerial acts and aircraft on display, there will be plenty for the kids to do to keep busy (and for the parents to take a break)! We will have bouncy houses and a touch a truck event to keep those little ones occupied in between shows.
Let your children express themselves with a cool temporary face paint design!
The Beverly Regional Airshow has chosen local food trucks to be our food and drink vendors this year. Food trucks have a unique following and seem to be the up and coming vendors of choice all over the country! With 12+ trucks to choose from, we think that food trucks will provide unique and delicious food options for everyone to enjoy!
The Darren Bessette Band
Six completely different musical backgrounds and countless years of experience makeup the Darren Bessette Band. Members of the band have opened for and toured over the years with megastars like Kenny Chesney, Garth Brooks, Hank Williams Jr., and many of the biggest acts in between. The Band hails from Massachusetts and we are happy to have them performing at the Airshow!
During the show while the band isn’t playing, our DJ and master of ceremonies will be playing the latest hits and providing information on what’s happening around the event.
