From Logan, Utah, Wursten has shown interest in aviation since the time he could walk. At an early age, he was an avid RC Model Aircraft enthusiast and still is to this day. In his late teens, he received his pilots’ license and quickly grew his hours and skills set by accompanying his father around the country for business in the family twin engine aircraft. Shortly afterward, Wursten bought his first aerobatic plane and has been flying aerobatics for 10 years. Although Wursten is a relative new comer to the air show scene, the high-energy and high speed aerobatics he performs is nothing short of aggressive and spectacular.
Wursten will fly the MXS-R, which was designed to set a new standard in unlimited performance aircraft in a somewhat aging aerobatic market place. It is a single seat, carbon fiber aircraft utilizing advanced, state-of-the-art composite materials, sophisticated development tools, novel processes and world class engineering skills blended to create a unique combination of structural performance, quality and durability. With immediate presence both dynamically and statically, the MXS clearly demonstrates its purpose and intent. This presence and aggression is communicated through technology on show.
More exciting details about other show performers, static displays and additional features will be announced soon. Ticket options for every budget are available from general admission to private chalets where spectators enjoy the most exclusive seating, private amenities and the best view of the show. Tickets for the show are available online at a discounted price at www.ThunderOverUtah.com.
