2019 Featured Performers

Erik Edgren

Erik is a comedian, a pilot, and sometimes both, while farming in Oskaloosa, IA. ‘Farming is my job and family legacy, and I really enjoy it, but flying is my passion.’ Erik soloed at age 8, learned to do spins at age 10. He taught flying, and flew lear jets for corporate America, before returning to Iowa to settle into family life and take over the farm that had been in his family since before the Homestead Act. He flies a 1939 Taylorcraft ‘T Clips’, with an ‘old school’ Continental C-85 engine, retrofitted for acrobatics in 1997. The plane can fly at 125 mph, 165 during dives. It’s bright red color is awe inspiring, and his loops and close-to-the-ground daredevil act is crowd thrilling.
