No date yet set for the next WAM event.
The World Air Masters (© TM) contest is a format devised by Mark Jefferies of Airdisplays.com consisting of two parts, firstly an Aerobatic race through pylons positioned 800 meters apart and secondly a four minutes freestyle sequence judged by the crowd who vote on the best performance. A video can be found here. There will be 2 “aresti” flights through the pylons, a know sequence and an unknown sequence, this popular concept will be seen for the first time in China staged at a WAM event.
Flying takes place twice a day in two, 2 hour sections. The flying will consist of solo unlimited aerobatics, 2 ship, 3 ship, 4 ship and 5 ship formation teams. Interspersed with the high performance aerobatic and competition aircraft for the WAM element. The tempo will be slowed down and a demonstration of para motors streaming smoke and ribbons allowing the aircraft to refuel and prepare for the second section of each show. The high speed action then returns with a demonstration “bomb dropping” where a bomb is dropped on a target, ground based pyrotechnics will simulate explosions on the target. Also as part of the show skywriting with smiling faces, hearts and kisses. More news later.
