Mike Wiskus Returns to the Skies After Health Scare

Mike Wiskus - Waterloo Airshow 2014After a leave of absence due to health issues, Mike Wiskus and his Lucas Oil Pitts have both returned to the airshow circuit. Some of you may have been wondering where Mike has been so far this airshow season and it was a bit of a mystery until he posted a letter announcing his return and explaining what he has been going through.

Mike had a lump behind his left ear removed and examined in January, when doctors discovered that he had stage III cancer. He has been going through treatments and was cleared to fly again just last month. Like a true aviator, he flew that very day and performed at his first airshow back in Waterloo, Ontario at the end of June. Mike expects to complete the rest of his 2014 schedule with no issues. Mike is a great guy and it is very encouraging to hear of his full recovery!
