Bray Aircraft profile day 8 (part 2) – Trig Aerobatic team

Day 8 (part 2) of our ‪#‎BrayAirDisplay‬ aircraft profile are the Trig Aerobatic team

The Trig Aerobatic Team is flown by Richard Grace and Dave Puleston in their Pitts Special S-1D biplanes. Richard says “the Pitts is a great display aircraft, highly manoeuvrable and with a top speed of only 200 mph this allows us to fly a tight, compact display where the action takes place right in front of the crowd line”.

Flying only 5 feet apart, their high-G manoeuvres subject Richard and Dave to gravitational or ‘g forces’ of up to +6 g and -4g. Precision flight under such conditions underlines these pilots’ extreme skill and professionalism.

Sponsors, Trig Avionics Limited design and manufacture avionics for light aviation. Both Pitts are equipped with Trig TT22 Mode S transponders, which are suitable for use in all types of light aircraft.
Their displays are Highly manoeuvrable, powerful and light but with a relatively low top speed of 200mph. Both of their Pitts aircraft were rebuilt by themselves and they carry out their own engineering and maintenance, which gives them an intimate knowledge of our machine

They will surely put on an exciting display at #BrayAirDisplay this weekend.


Check back tomorrow for another #BrayAirDisplay aircraft profile, and we move onto the jets!!
