Mike Goulian has spent 20 years performing for air show audiences around the globe. His list of achievements include winning the United States Unlimited Aerobatic Championship, competing in the popular Red Bull Air Race, and receiving both the prestigious Art Scholl Award for Showmanship in 2006, and Bill Barber Award for Showmanship in 2009.
Prior to joining MGAS, Chris Porter acted as a management assistant to several Grammy Award winning music artists, managed a successful flight school, and developed an aerobatic training program in Rhode Island. Flight has always been Porter’s first passion. “I began flying with the sole intention of pursuing a career in the air show industry. Mike and his team have presented me with the opportunity I’ve dreamt about.”
“Chris’s sincere love for air shows and strong work ethic will be a great asset to our team,” added Mike Goulian.
The addition of Chris Porter to MGAS will enhance the organization’s ability to provide the highest level of aerial entertainment in the world while increasing the global presence of the team and their respective sponsors through the development of web-based media and on-site hospitality programs. Porter will also serve as the Relocation Pilot for MGAS, delivering the EXTRA 330SC to each show location throughout the country.
Chris will join the MGAS team at the International Council of Air Shows convention in Las Vegas, NV from December 4 – 7, 2011.
