The Air Force Roulettes team will showcase aerial horsepower as part of the Parkes Aero Club 70th Anniversary Commemoration Air Show at 12.10pm on 14 April in Parkes, NSW.

The Roulettes are the Royal Australian Air Force’s aerobatic display team based at RAAF Base East Sale. They will perform their air display in six Pilatus PC-9A aircraft, a two-seat single engine turboprop aircraft that is the advanced training aircraft for the Australian Defence Force.

Throughout the display each pilot will maintain their aircraft only 3 metres from each other while conducting aerobatics and flypasts down to 70 metres above the ground and at speeds of up to 550km/hr.

The team comprises seven members, six of whom fly the display, and Roulette 7, who provides commentary and will be available to answer questions on the Roulettes and their display.
