Professional Race Pilot

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 race track, he is normally flying toward another adventure.

Favorite Book

I’m a bit of a geek about watching and reading weather… so I’m doing that on my iPad when most others would be reading their favorite novel.

Favorite Movie

Any adventure movie based on a true story

Favorite Food

Fresh walleye I catch in my favorite lake!

Pete’s Favorite Device

D2 Bravo Titanium

“Staying ahead of the plane in the race track is everything. There’s a lot of visualization to focus on that perfect run in your mind. It’s almost like you engage autopilot. The D2 Bravo helps you approach some of those finer details and what that fast line is and hitting it perfectly.”
