Hi guys

I have just read the thread saying no weapons, I was just wondering is there anyway a live fire excise could be done?

Thanks
Michael

What do you mean? It's all about aerobatic flight here.

This is certainly a spambot. See its email adress.

it is not a spam bot, i live in new zealand and my name is Michael.

I was just asking because a lot of aerobatics is used in real world combat situations.

A live fire exercise is (it is done at some airshows, space permitting) an exercise to show how an aircraft can be used to kill targets. it is normally A to G display.
you get to see  aircraft (normally A10 or other a/g aircraft) going through rolls and a series of maneuvers, so it is an aerobatics display with the bonus of have loud explosions.

It was just a thought, i didn't want to annoy anyone (sorry if i did)

Would be an interesting one, for sure.

This is seen in many airshows, and could be a nice one for next VFAT. However, organizers then should study safety rules regarding use of this pyrotechnics. Sometimes in airshows use of real ammunition is also present, like in Axalp. Again, this would require more complex safety rules, but I think it can be a nice thing for VFAT 2010.

Really a great idea Malikah, as we are using simulators that could be interesting to show an airbase attack for example.

I think this could fit into this ACE rule :

4 For a non-aerobatic performance to be approved, a clear connection to a performance you could see at an air show must be shown.

Heh.  We did something like this back in like 12/05 or maybe 1/06 with C3P0 from (at the time) Lead Pursuit.  He was writing a series of articles for PCPilot.  We put together a (at least) 16 ship airbase strike package for him to get screenshots of.  Think the article was in the "March/April '06" edition.

Hi Malikah,

thanks for sharing your idea.

My personal view is that we have enough wars around the world showing terrible images "real aviation attacks" and there is no need to show this during the VFAT.
I think there is plenty space elsewhere to show such kind of stuff and I would like to keep the VFAT away of this unnecessary "show of force".

Thanks
