Team Xtreme Airshows is a Formation Aerobatic Team flown by South African aerobatic pilots. The Team was started in 2010 by Mark Hensman & Nigel Hopkins flying two MX2 aerobatic aircraft in a high-energy duo display.
The duo Team is joined by Mark Sampson & Jason Beamish to make a dynamic 4-ship display which includes formation & freestyle aerobatics, cross-over passes, synchronized manoeuvers and solo gyroscopics.
Each pilot is an active member of the Sport Aerobatic Club of South Africa and holds an Advanced or Unlimited Aerobatic Rating in addition to the required Display Ratings. The pilots have a combined experience of 47,700 flight hours.
The Aerobatic Team has performed nearly 100 displays in South Africa, Southern Africa and China since 2010, and were voted in the top 3 civilian Aerobatic Teams at the inaugural Formation Aerobatic Challenge (FAC 2017) held in Zhengzhou, China.
