The Gazelle Squadron are delighted to confirm that they will be providing a 2 ship flying display and a static aircraft display at this years Silverstone Classic event 28th-30th July.
G-ZZEL, which is still in it's civilian colours received it's permit to fly in early April and it is hoped that XZ321 our Gulf war Gazelle will receive it's permit before the end of April, this is the result of an outstanding effort over the Winter and Spring seasons by our engineers at Falcon Aviation.
The Team are working hard in preparation for 2017 .
We have enjoyed a number of successful training days over the winter during which the crews have been rehearsing and familiarising themselves with formation practices
At the same time, the groundcrews and technicians have been labouring to prepare the 2 new airframes for the season, these new aircraft which include our Op Granby Gazelle are awaiting CAA inspections to secure their permit to fly certification.
The Gazelle Squadron is delighted that it has been able to continue it's sponsorship arrangement with Airbox Aerospace.
Airbox have kindly agreed to continue providing the Squadron's display pilots with access to their market leading RUNWAY HD software.
Flight Safety is paramount and the clarity with which the award winning Runway HD software combines airspace, meteorological and navigation data is essential in a busy cockpit..
