The trickiest manoeuvres you have performed? Have you ever experienced any near misses during shows?
That would be the corkscrew. Two aircrafts – R7 and R6 – do this synchronised show in the air that involves a lot of rolls and flying upside down. It can get tricky. Expect to see it in the Dubai Air Show. During the early stages of our training we might get close to other planes, but safety is always our primary concern. A lot of what you see as an audience might look scary from below but we are doing all the close turns and manoeuvres on purpose to put on a good show.
