Wildcat Aerobatics is one of the most exciting acts on the air show scene, displaying close formation aerobatics and precision synchronised flying in the iconic Pitts Special biplane.
The team was formed in 2010 out of a mutual love of aerobatics by pilots Al Coutts and Willie Cruickshank.
Over the years, the team has developed an exciting choreographed air show act that combines a graceful mix of balletic, close-formation aerobatics and high-speed opposition passes where their closing speed is in excess of 400mph.
The team regularly displays all over the UK, the Channel Islands and northern Europe to hundreds of thousands of spectators evert year, both at large-scale public events and smaller private celebrations.
In addition, Wildcat Aerobatics also provides introductory flights to people eager to experience the thrills of flying formation aerobatics.
Through these exclusive activities, we aim to promote the team, its sponsors and attract new pilots to this most demanding and exciting of extreme sports.
THE PITTS SPECIAL
Wildcat Aerobatics use the S2B two-seat version of the Pitts Special and are based in Norfolk.
The Pitts Special, which has proved a crowd pleaser over the years, has been in existence since its unveiling in Florida in 1946.
Designed and built by Curtis Pitts, an aircraft engineer and keen aerobatic pilot, the aircraft has proved to be so popular that it has been in constant production.
Our two aircraft came off the production line just six months apart in 1988 and have been restored by Al and Willie.
The agile aeroplane is incredibly responsive and allows the team to display in close proximity when performing formation aerobatics.
