The Patrouille Suisse (the Swiss equivalent of the Red Arrows) returns to the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford in Gloucestershire with high-speed precision flight displays in six F-5 Tiger jets on 9 and 10 July.

The PC-7 aerobatics team in their nine distinctively painted red and white Pilatus PC-7 turbo trainer aeroplanes showcase their skills at Scotland’s National Airshow at the East Fortune Airfield in East Lothian on 23 July.

And from 18 to 21 August spectators at the Bournemouth Air Festival get a treat with a display of the versatility and range of the Swiss Super Puma helicopter Display Team.

“I am delighted to welcome three Swiss aerobatic teams in my first year here in the UK. The teams’ presence reflects the friendship and good relations between both countries’ air forces.”

Colonel (GS) Martin Lerch, Defence Attaché of Switzerland to the United Kingdom
