The announcer for this year's Wings Over Pittsburgh Open House/ Air Show will be Rob Reider. He’s known in the flying world as the on-camera host of the award-winning Sporty’s Pilot Shops “Learn to Fly” videos, helping thousands of people around the world to earn their pilots licenses and advanced ratings.
Rob is the narrator consultant/coach for the Navy Blue Angels, the Army Golden Knights, and the Air Force Air Combat Command demonstration teams.
One of the highlights of his career was in 2015 when he was selected to narrate the “Arsenal of Democracy Capitol Flyover,” commemorating the end of World War II in Europe. At that event more than 50 vintage World War II aircraft flew over Washington, DC., honoring those who served and sacrificed for our freedom.
2016 is also a banner year for Rob as he’s been selected to be the voice of the Breitling Jet Team’s American Tour. Based in France, they are the largest civilian aerobatic team in the world flying jets, bringing the message of Breitling watches to air show audiences all over the world.
His show business acumen, his encyclopedic aviation knowledge, his experience, and his excitement have put Rob Reider at the top of the list as the voice of many of the largest and most important air shows on the continent.
