…and now I’m not talking about logistics, gear or whatever. No, I’m talking more about how we are preparing for the team flying demos we’re about to do at the Blokhus Windfestival.

As you might know, the AERIALIS Team Flyers are flying demos all day long throughout the weekend of May 27th and 28th at the Blokhus Windfestival once again. But before we hit the beach with our flying we have been putting down quite a few hours into preparation.

Starting well before Christmas last year, Anders started doing some modifications to our 2022 team routine, mainly because Marco is joining in as a fourth team member this year. So Anders had to make the routine work for four pilots and did some cool tweaks.

Anders created a similar animation for last year’s routine too and turning out as a great success we persuaded him to do the same for the new routine. Watching this routine (over and over again) makes it much easier to understand what’s going on and the routine itself is much easier to memorize when having the animation.

When you start to watch the animation and take a closer look at the details, sometimes you find stuff that should be modified and the routine and the animation were modified accordingly. If I remember correctly we’re now into version 3. 🙂

For the last couple of months, I’ve watched the animated routine at least a couple of times each day and the result is that I now have totally memorized the complete routine!

I’ve also flown ‘my’ part of the routine on several occasions to get a feel for what it is to fly it for real. That’s one thing you cannot get from watching the animation only.

So hopefully when we all four pilots gather and start to put the routine together we’re all reasonably well prepared for this.


Bring it on! 🤙
