Air show performer Gene Soucy has helped to define air show entertainment during a career that has now spanned parts of six different decades.
As a member of the famed Eagles Aerobatic Team, as part of the wing walking duo he formed with Teresa Stokes in 1988, and as a solo performer for nearly five decades, Gene has long been recognized as one of the finest air show performers in the world. In a business where outstanding aviation skills are presumed, Gene has a well-deserved reputation as one of the best stick-and-rudder pilots in the air show community today.
He also was the first three-time U.S. National Aerobatic Champion and a member of the first U.S. team to win the World Aerobatic Championship.
Over the years, Gene has garnered the Bill Barber Award for Showmanship, the ICAS Sword of Excellence, the Art Scholl Showmanship Award, the Bill Adams Showmanship Award, and the Rolly Cole Memorial Award.
During his outstanding air show career, he has appeared in every major such event in North America, performed before tens of millions of spectators, and logged over 36,000 hours in 160 different types of aircraft, and has become known as “Mr. Air Show”.
