ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) — There’s only one guy in America who does helicopter backflips, or at least, who’s certified to do them — and he’s piloting the Red Bull Helicopter at Fair Saint Louis the next three days.

Chuck Aaron calls himself the “craziest person in the United States.”

He says he’s been fly stunt helicopter for the last 8 years but every time he’s nervous.

“Thirty minutes before I’m ready to fly, I’m scared to death,” says Aaron. “I still get worried, nervous up until I get in the cockpit and get the seat belt strapped on.”

Besides the back-flip, Aaron says he can do a roll, a loop and something called a “split S” in the chopper.

The U.S. Bank Air Show is at noon and 4 p.m. today and Friday, and 5 p.m. on Saturday on the riverfront downtown.
