Pete McLeod, world-famous race pilot and self-proclaimed “kid from the bush,” grew up in a small town in northern Canada — fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, playing hockey and flying small bush planes. In 2009, he became the youngest pilot ever to compete in the top-level Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Pete feels at home racing more than 200 mph mere feet from the ground and off the grid in the wilds of Canada — and he’s as passionate about his outdoor adventures as he is about his racing career. When he is not in the racetrack, he is normally flying toward another adventure.
