Russian Knights aerobatic team is willing to offer training to other nations which own Su-30 series of aircraft.

To a question by Defenseworld.net at a press conference during the ongoing Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace (LIMA) 2017 exhibition, the Col Andrei Alekseev, the group leader of the Russian Knights team said, “As of now, the Russian Knights will not be including any pilots from other nations, but we will be happy to train them if requested to form an aerobatic team for their country.”

“The team has developed new aerobatic stunts that have never been performed on a heavy fighter aircraft,” he added.

At its inaugural performance using Su-30SM fighter jets, the ‘Russian Knights’ team showed off some incredible aerobatics which the team claimed had been developed and practiced within the past one month.

Following its successful LIMA performance, the team expects to repeat its aerobatic displays around the world. Earlier, the Russian Knights were using older generation Su-27 fighter jets.
