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.
