Aerobatics Team "Russ"
The Russian "Russ" Aerobatics Team flying in L-39 jet planes which is one of the best in the world and is one of top-ten world aerobatics teams.
The "Russ" Aerobatics Team consists of the most qualified Russian pilots and it is based in Vyazma, in the aviation education centre. For more than 19 years, the team has represented Russia in different international air shows, showing the highest levels of flying skills. They have performed more than 200 times in many Russian cities as well as abroad. Now consists of 8 first-class pilots. Each of them had difficult training at the school of aerobatics in jet planes.
History of "Russ" Aerobatics Team:
The "Russ" Aerobatics Team was organized on the base of Aviation Education Center, in 1987. For this reason, ten L-39 planes have been transferred to Vyazma. The first public performance of the new aerobatics team was in the August, 1987 air show. The team consisted of 10 planes, nine planes performed team aerobatics and one plane was solo. Over eight hundred thousand visitors came to see it, as well as TV viewers, from all the USSR, who saw this performance.
Since 1992, 1st-class pilot Kazimir Tihanovich has been head of Flight Centre in Vyazma and also the "Russ" Aerobatics Team. In 1997 the team performed in the Czech Republic and foreign experts praised the high skills of the team’s pilots. Even representatives of the L-39 manufacturer, "Aero Vodohodu" have noted the calibre of the Russian pilots. They were gifted with flashy paint-jobs for the planes. The "Russ" Aerobatics Team often performs at air shows. Now, the Flight center in Vyazma has been renamed, "Vjazemsky Aeroclub."
The "Russ" Aerobatics Team has its own program of high performance aerobatics for either group or single plane. Pilots develop their own unique high performance aerobatics and use them in the airshows. During the performance the pilots suffer from 4 to 8G stresses. The minimum distance between planes during flight is only one meter!
