In 1943 Curtis Pitts built the first of a line of aircraft that dominated aerobatic competition through the early 1980s.  The S-1 was a minor type until Pitts began selling construction drawings in the early 1960s.

When Pitts designed the two-seat S-2 in 1967, it was only available factory-built by Aerotek of Ashton, Wyoming.

Pitts sold out to Doyle Child in 1976 who formed Pitts Aerobatics at the Aerotek site.

Pitts Aerobatics was sold to Christen Industries in 1983.

In 1991, Christen Industries was bought by Aviat Aircraft.
