This week, Team #99 reached a huge milestone as we completed an incredibly successful modification and test program on our Red Bull Air Race Edge 540. After an amazing around the clock effort by my Teammates & Bully Aero, we have built what we feel is a monster race plane. There are so many details on the mods that there is not enough room to write it in this post.
The effort of this project was enormous in terms of man hours but also funding. For that, I am so incredibly grateful for my air race sponsors who stepped up in support of our team. My sponsors are like family which makes flying this amazing machine around the globe special for me. So THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to Hartzell Propeller, Cirrus Aircraft, & Bose Aviation for supporting this huge endeavor. We can’t wait to get this plane on a track in Abu Dhabi in a few weeks time. For all of our faithful followers, we will surely be giving our 100% best effort this summer for lots of podiums.
Stay tuned for the first Red Bull Air Race in Abu Dhabi on March 11 – 12.
