October 07, 2015 // Franchising.com // NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. - Window World®, America’s largest replacement window and exterior remodeling company, proudly shares that on Sept. 25, 2015, partner Rob Holland of Rob Holland Ultimate Airshows won his fifth U.S. National Championship gold medal less than one month after winning the World Freestyle Aerobatic Championship in France.
In August, Holland finished in first place for the third time representing team U.S.A. at the 28th World Aerobatic Championships. Held at the Châteauroux-Deols Airport, the 10-day competition hosted over 60 aerobatic pilots from 18 countries, including Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, and Italy.
Holland secured his record-breaking fifth consecutive U.S. gold medal, becoming the first pilot to do so in the history of the tournament. The six-day contest was held at the North Texas Regional Airport in Denison, Texas, with more than 90 competitors.
“It is a bit surreal and truly an honor,” said Holland. “I attribute much of my success this year to the help, support, and kindness of the Window World Family.”
Window World announced its primary sponsorship of Rob Holland Ultimate Airshows’ 2015 season earlier this year. Holland has flown in front of millions of spectators worldwide since 2001.
"We are excited for Rob and his recent accomplishments," said Todd Woods, vice president of marketing and market development for Window World. "His passion for the sport is undeniable, and we are honored to be his partner."
