Frecce Tricolori is the aerobatic demonstration team of the Italian Air Force. Operating out of Rivolto Air Base, it was created on March 1, 1961, as a permanent group for the training of Air Force pilots in aerobatics. The team flies the Aermacchi MB-339-A/PAN, a two-seat jet trainer capable of 898 km/h at sea level. With 10 aircraft, nine in close formation and a soloist, they are one of the world’s largest aerobatics display teams. Their flight schedule, comprising about 20 daring maneuvers in about half an hour, have made them among the most popular aerobatic shows in the world.
