Curtis Pitts began the design of a single-seat aerobatic biplane in 1943–1944. The design has been refined continuously since then but the current Pitts S2 still remains quite close to the original in concept and in design. All single-seat (S-1) and two-seat (S-2) Pitts Specials are thus variations on the basic design from 1944. In 1962 Curtis Pitts set up Pitts Enterprises to sell plans of the S-1C to home builders. In 1977 Curtis Pitts sold his interests in the Pitts S1 & S2 to Doyle Child. Child later sold the rights in 1981 to Frank Christenson, who continued production at the Afton plant under the guise of Christen Industries. The rights for home-built versions of the Pitts were sold in 1994 to Steen Aero Lab,[9] with the Afton, Wyoming factory and production rights being transferred to Aviat Aircraft. Curtis Pitts died in 2005 at age 89.
