Mike and Emily Collett, former British champions and members of the British Advanced Aerobatics team, have taken over Alan Cassidy’s aerobatics business at White Waltham airfield.
Alan has run Freestyle Aviation at White Waltham for more than 25 years, and is a four-times British aerobatics champion. Alan has also written the definitive book on aerobatics Better Aerobatics, as well as being a judge in aerobatic competitions.
Mike and Emily will operate under their own company name, Ultimate Aerobatics, and Alan will continue to share his experience and knowledge by continuing to instruct and offer aerobatic flights.
The Colletts are keen to share their passion with everyone,even if just for the most gentlest of aerobatics for the most nervous of pilots or passengers. They will be offering flights to anyone who has a desire to experience aerobatics, for aerobatic training or to buy a flight as a gift.
Alan’s famous Pitts S2A will also be available for competition hire at competitive rates.
Mike Collett said, “Whilst it is a daunting task to follow in the footsteps of one of the all-time great Pitts pilots, we are excited to take on this new venture and are delighted that Alan is willing to stay involved and share his experience with us and our students. We are delighted to continue our partnership with Total and Trig in this new venture”
