May 2013 Training
15 May 2013
An image from the rear seat of RED8's jet in the Corkscrew. 3 barrel rolls are performed in opposite directions from both RED8 and RED9 while RED6 and RED7 fly inverted at 350 Knots. A lot of trust is gained by the pilots in Gypo over our training period for such maneuvers as this.
Gypo in the Corkscrew. We mounted a camera on the left wing of RED9 looking directly in front in view of all the aircraft. Tight rolls have to be made by REDs 8 and 9 in order to not gain too much momentum, spoiling the effect. At the end of the maneuver RED6 and RED7 have to precisely roll the aircraft from inverted to climb away behind display datum.
This image shows the comeback of our famous Goose maneuver. The camera is mounted on the left wing of RED9's jet as Ghost begins the 8G pull up through the centre of Enid. On the 'POWER' call of RED1, REDs 1-5 vigorously reform Big 5 formation and open the throttles up on their Adour Engines. The speedbrakes are extended throughout half of the maneuver to create a good thick stream of smoke out the back of the jets.

All Virtual Red Arrow pilots fly with Thrustmaster equipment specifically the Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog and MDF Cougar Pack. All pilots graduating to an active position on the team will be loaned this equipment to continue their training as an active member on behalf of our sponsor. We wish both pilots the best of luck.
Are you interested in becoming a virtual aerobatic pilot? Do you relish in a challenge? Why not test your skills on our public phantom training robot. Think you're good enough? The Virtual Red Arrows are looking for both pilots, commentators and camera crew, apply here.
