About Kyle Fowler
Kyle Fowler is living out the dream of being an aerobatic pilot, a dream that he has had since the age of 12, when he would announce his father’s aerobatic performances at air shows. Today, he performs a thrilling routine of his own in a yellow 1986 Long EZ homebuilt. Kyle started flying air shows in 2016 and last year he participated in the Canadian Arctic Aviation Tour where he performed at 67 airshows across Canada’s Arctic.
When he is not evolving as a pilot, Fowler divides his time between his full-time job as a Red Seal Journeyman Automotive Mechanic, and his family. His family is incredibly proud of his accomplishments and will always be his biggest fans.

Kyle’s new plane, the Long EZ, is the perfect combination of comfort and style. Though not capable of aggressive aerobatics the Long EZ makes up for it with its unique look in the delta wing canard design, making it the perfect airplane for Kyle’s unique airshow routine.
