Over the past seven years, the Mazda Aerobatic Team has established itself as one of the best Formation Aerobatic Teams in the world. They achieved International recognition as the first South African team to display outside the country when they were invited to demonstrate their skills in the United Arab Emirates in 2006.

In 2007, the team upgraded their aircraft from the ageing Zlin’s to the best the world has to offer, namely the German built Extra 300L. Its clean lines allow it to achieve speeds in excess of 370km per hour and the aircraft is built to withstand the force of 12 G’s (12 times the force of gravity)

At 12 G’s, a pilot would feel the weight of over 850 kilograms on his body. They therefore have to be extremely fit to cope with such stresses and since they don’t wear fighter-style anti-g suits, it makes it all the more challenging.

The Mazda Aerobatic Team have flown close to 300 displays around South Afirca and this is their seventh year representing the brand – but they still work on new routines to keep things interesting.

Hey I can see the Wimpy , any one for breakfast ???
