Sponsorship of RAF Display teams

By 12 May 2024May 14th, 2024No Comments

As a brand we’ve always been close to the Royal Air Force and in fact we have a license to use any motifs and brevets across the MOD. Becoming a sponsor for the finest display teams in the world is a genuine honour.

This season, 2024, we are delighted to once again sponsor the Red Arrows and Typhoon display teams.

In March we were able to take our competition winners to meet the Red Arrows at their home, RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire.

Here we were treated to a presentation by Red 5 that covered the history of the team, details on how they prepare for a season and what we can expect from this very special 60th anniversary year:

The 2024 Season includes:

  • The diamond 9 formation will return!
  • A special design for the 60th season will be added to the jets
  • The team will visit and tour Canada in August, Maple Hawk
  • The Canadian Tour will help celebrate the Centennial of the Canadian Air Force

While we waited for the cloud to clear to observe a display, we chatted to Red 1, OC RAFAT and Corporal Phil Dye. Phil delved deeper into the world of RAF and aviation photography. His shots are truly fantastic and we were thrilled to receive a signed photograph from the team in action over the Pyramids in Cairo.

Big thanks to Caroline, Kathryn, Maddie and guests for coming along and braving the cold to wait for that fab display with the Gnat!

It is our second year working with the Typhoon display team as a sponsor and we are delighted to supply Flight Lieutenant David “Turbo” Turnbull with his personalised Pilot Bag. The bag itself was infact designed by a former Typhoon Display Pilot, Jim Peterson!
