Steve Hinton

Steve Hinton is a fixture in the world of warbirds, performing at air shows around the world for more than 35 years in 150 different types of aircraft. His restoration company, Fighter Rebuilders LLC, has restored more than 40 warbirds to pristine flying condition.

Hinton’s accolades as a pilot are impressive: President of Planes of Fame Air Museum since 1994, founding member of the Motion Picture Pilots Association, civilian pilot with the USAF Heritage Flight; World Speed Record holder, and Reno Air Race Champion. All of this has allowed him to rack up more than 7,000 hours flying WWII fighters. Steve was inducted into the EAA Warbird Hall of Fame in 2005 and received the Art Sholl Showmanship Award from the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS) in 2010. Currently living with his wife Karen in Newport Beach, California, Steve cherishes any time he gets to share with their twins Steven and Amanda.
