VFAT - The biggest virtual air show in the world.

Around the world there are several aeronautic events, some are civilians and are performed in local airports or small airfields and others are military and performed in military airbases. But, have you heard about of a virtual air show?

The VFAT, Virtual Festival of Aerobatic Teams, a annual festival that put together several virtual squadrons, when aeronautic enthusiasts and real pilots put aside their jobs and cockpits and get together in front of their computers to fly virtually. Recently the AeroLatina made a review with the EDAV, the Virtual Brazilian Smoke Squadron from Brazil that after spent all 2012 training hard, made their first appearance in this huge event and sure they represent Brazil well. Thousands of people attended the event which lasted three days and was a real success. The event uses a fantastic technology to transmission live images to the world.

The pilots use this simulator to reproduce the real squadrons display, such as: Frecce Tricolori, Thunderbirds, Blue Angels, Patrouille de France, Red Arrows, Russian Knights and of course our Smoke Squadron and many more around the world.

Well that's it, hope you guys like it as much as we did!  Cheesy
