Details

The Air Force Roulettes display team will conduct a low level aerobatic display over the RAAF Museum, followed by the opportunity to meet and greet the pilots on Sunday 17 February.

The Roulettes will perform their air display in six Pilatus PC-9/A aircraft. Throughout the display each pilot will maintain their aircraft within 3 metres while conducting aerobatics and flypasts as low as 70 metres above the ground and at speeds of up to 550km/hr.

The Roulettes will fly the Pilatus PC-9/A aircraft for the last time at next month’s Avalon International Air Show.

The Pilatus PC-9/A aircraft based at RAAF Base East Sale have been an integral part of the Air Force Central Flying School, facilitating Navy and Air Force pilots to become flying instructors. The Swiss designed, Australian built Pilatus PC-9/A is being replaced by the Pilatus PC-21.

The spokesperson for the event will be Flight Lieutenant Daniel Armstrong from the Air Force Roulettes.

The display will take place from 1.30 to 1.55pm at the RAAF Museum, Point Cook Road, RAAF Base Point Cook.

All flying is subject to change due to weather or operational requirements.
