To be sure he gets to his airshows on time and safely, Jim relies on Sirius XM Aviation for his real-time weather updates.


"I can't imagine flying into some of the areas I travel to without the reliability of Sirius XM Weather," says the seasoned airshow performer. "I have to use something I truly believe in, plus, it sure is nice to have the full package of Sirius XM music and entertainment on long flights!"

Aircraft lighting is one of the most critical aspects of safety in aviation. You need to see, and even more importantly, you need to be seen. Jim uses Whelen Aerospace Technologies for his landing and marker lights on the amazing F33C Aerobatic Bonanza, because, according to Jim, "Why would you not want the clearest, most reliable lighting during the most potentially hazardous times to fly? I fly to shows all over, and sometimes that means a late arrival. WAT lighting provides me with peace of mind  with their quality engineered products, and I know that when I flip the switch, I have the most brilliant and visible lighting that is custom built and STC'd for my airplane." Whelen Aerospace Technologies represents a rich history in technological innovations and is now positioned as the global leader in the aerospace lighting market, made in America since 1952!
