"The Silver Chicken" joins the Flying Display
31 July 2013

The CAP-21DS “The Silver Chicken” homebuilt, experimental aircraft from Italy will be participating in this year’s edition. The aircraft is a single seat, aerobatic airplane specifically designed for international level competition. Its flight qualities turn her into a safe and healthy machine, easily flown by pilots which otherwise would be unable to manage such a high level of performance.

Built in 1982 “The Silver Chicken” has been crossing the bright skies of sport aerobatics since then, continuously improved and updated to keep up with the ever-growing pace of sport and technical progress, and is still one of the best aerobatic airplanes in the world.

Every routine flown is a sequence of figures performed solo, highlighted by white smoke accompanied by music. The combination between pilot and aircraft in such a show is breath-taking. The skill and creativity ensures thrilling, high-level performances for all to enjoy.
