Captain Steven “Vrieske” De Vries, the new demo pilot for the Belgian Air Force F-16 solo display, began his training flights over the Kleine Brogel Air Base in preparation for the upcoming Airshow season.
Although Vrieske began his initial training a few weeks ago, designing and perfecting his routine in the flight simulator, it wasn’t until this week that he performed the first demo practice in the real F-16. The first demo practice with a minimum altitude of 5.000 feet took place on Monday the 17th of January, since then Vrieske performed a number of training flights and went down to 3,000 feet. For the next few weeks, he will continue to practice his routine and slowly go lower to progressively descent to 500 feet, the Airshow minima.
Vrieske designed the all-new display routine which will last for around 10 minutes and definitely this will be the demo you don't wanna miss this summer with both the pilot and the aircraft pushed to the limits.
Stay tuned for the schedule and info on the new paint scheme for the F-16.
