Other Info: My name is Lukas James-Dean Ackerman I’m 31. And I fly loopity flippers with radio controlled planes. For my humble and grounded description I would proceed as follows: From a young age I needed to fly. And now with a good job and family that passion has led into somewhat of an obsessive love for giant scale and competition model aircraft. And all aviation in general, but focusing on scale aerobatics. And dabbling with 3D, F3K and other RC disciplines. While newer to the hobby than some, I don’t ever do anything halfway.(shrug) And now with the full support of my team and pit crew we in full swing Team Ackerman RC Aviation consists of: 1st)My lovely wife, Jacky Ackerman who pushes me in my craft and passion. 2nd)My daughter, Best friend and co-pilot Journey Ackerman. Best&cutest helper in the game @2.5years young. 3rd and least importantly)My stubborn a** who has no real natural talent but a painful drive to be the best I can be! And of course the most important part that keeps this show on the road is all the great people I have met and who have helped me so far and daily in this hobby! Thank you! Outside of flying, building, and dreaming and drooling on planes. I am a co-owner and operator of contracting company and hold a General Contractors license in the state of CA. The main company I operate is called CoverPro California and we specialize in automatic swimming pool covers in Southern California. Our passionate and experienced team help to serve more accounts than most companies in our industry. CoverPro is family and apart of my life equally as often as my growing flying field family. Come say hi if you see us at the field!!
