Aero GP at Al Ain Aerobatic Show

had some very good days here at the 2010 Al Ain Aerobatic Show. The Aero GP 6 pilots: Andy Bickmore, Zoltan Veres, Castor Fantoba, Nigel Hopkins, Gerald Cooper and Smokey Young performed at their best to impress the audience. The first Air Race, on 27th, was fantastic. The second one as well. Zoltan Veres won both of them, followed by Andy Bickmore in his new plane S-bach 342.

The air combat stage kept the audience’s attention. Castor is doing very well with his awesome techniques, Nigel’s combats are very calculated, Smokey won a few combats already, Zoltan’s moves are fantastic, Gerald was incredible as he won a few combats on the first day and Andy shows all the best he can in his Sbach, designed by Philip Steinbach. Andy is very lucky to have Philip with him at all time.

This time Aero GP has prepared a new task for the public: aerobatics to music. Basically in this task pilots are tested on their individual aerobatic skills and ability through various precision stunts. We heard a good mix of music for the aerobatics performances.

Here at the Al Ain Aerobatic Show the Aero GP LIVE Broadcast on was amazing and very well welcomed.

The Final Podium looked like this:
