Pitts Special (perusahaan sebutan S1 dan S2) adalah serangkaian pesawat biplane aerobatik ringan yang dirancang oleh Curtis Pitts.

Pesawat ini telah mengumpulkan banyak kemenangan kompetisi sejak penerbangan pertama pada tahun 1944. Pitts biplane mendominasi kompetisi aerobatik dunia pada 1960-an dan 1970-an dan, bahkan hari ini, tetap menjadi pesawat kompetisi ampuh dalam kategori rendah.[1][2]
