The Blades Aerobatic Display Team operates four Extra 300 LP fully aerobatic aircraft. Their pilots are all highly skilled fast jet aircrew. Some of them have also been RAF display pilots on such aircraft as the Jaguar and Harrier. As well as flying with The Red Arrows, The Blades have carried out over 300 displays over the last three years and been seen by millions of people. As well as flying displays, The Blades undertake corporate and fundraising events which includes recently raising funds for Children in Need.
