We are proud and happy to present a new virtual aerobatic team: VAT Skybreakers

 

The team, was founded in january 2011. Following VFAT 2010, motivation became high to start a team with a kind of old school american spirit.

 

We fly the F-105B, on a 3D model made by Pink_Tigrou. The aircraft is flown using the vanilla F-4E Phantom II flight model.

 

Our skin, and logo have been drawn courtesy of Kraygoon, from the 2nd-FFS virtual squadron.

 

At the moment, the team is manned by four pilots, and although all of us are French, we intend the team to be an international one, and are eager to recruit people from any country. All in-flight communications are made in English.

 

Members:

 

#1 Flight leader: Robin 'Robin Hood' Holliger, aged 25. He has been flying Lock-On for four years in the 2nd-FFS, a french realistic combat-oriented virtual squadron. Still a member, he has gladly took on the challenge of leading VAT Skybreakers. As a side note, he is also known as the VFAT Air Race winner in both 2009 and 2010 races.

#2 Left wing: Baptiste 'Mushu' Marchal, aged 25. He has been flying Lock-On for three years. After several years flying combat, he switched to aerobatics and joined the Patrouille Virevolte. After a year and a low point in the team's activity, he left, and decided after VFAT 2010 to found his own aerobatics team.

#3 Right wing: Nicolas 'Luzi' Godino, aged 20. He has been flying Lock-On since 2007, and after spending years flying combat in various virtual squadrons, such as the 21th TAW and the 2nd-FFS, aerobatics started to grow on him, and he was forcefully enlisted in VAT Skybreakers.

 

#4 Slot: Laurent 'Linriel' Holliger, aged 28. His Lock-On experience started rather harshly, as the first time he ever flew it was as a slot pilot in a 4-ship amateur aerobatics formation in early 2010.

Since the announcement of our aerobatic team, the Virtual Skyblazers, there have been some concern expressed about the non-accurate representation of the original Skyblazers that we offer. We have been talking with people associated with the USAFE Skyblazers, who have been worried that our team would misrepresent the Syblazers and mislead people not familiar with them and with the virtual aerobatic community.


 

Therefore, and since the last thing in our mind is to misrepresent or in any way show disrespect to the original Skyblazers, we have elected to drop the Skyblazer name and switch to a more neutral one. We are thus now presenting to you the VAT Skybreakers, flying the F-105B Thunderchief. We sincerily apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change, and hope you will follow us as we make a name for ourselves.
