David Jenkins: “Wildcat 3”
David Jenkins was a member of Wildcat Aerobatics from 2013 until 2015, when he was tragically killed during an aerobatic practice flight at our home base of Old Buckenham airfield.
David began aerobatic flying in 2004 and went on to become one of the leading pilots in UK aerobatics in his Laser aeroplane. In 2009 he sold the Laser and purchased his Edge 360 which he displayed regularly after gaining his display authorization in 2006. A regular at UK aerobatics competitions, he was the British Aerobatics Advanced Champion in 2012 and 2013. He also represented Great Britain as a member of the British team at both European and World Aerobatic Championships. In 2012 the team achieved 4th place, just behind the USA, France and Russia.
David joined Wildcat Aerobatics in 2013, and we were honoured to fly alongside him. He is hugely missed.
