RAF Typhoon Display Team
The Royal Air Force Typhoon is a world class multi-role combat aircraft capable of being deployed in the full spectrum of air operations, from air policing and peace support, through to high intensity conflict.
The RAF Typhoon Display Team provides the opportunity to showcase this amazing aircraft to the general public. For the RAF100 centenary celebrations during 2018, pilot Flight Lieutenant Jim Peterson designed a display to show off the Typhoon’s immense power and acceleration, ensuring that the display team's catchphrase of #BringTheNoise is as appropriate as ever. Jim will once again be the display pilot for the 2019 season.
Leonardo is a partner company of the Eurofighter Typhoon consortium and is proud to be continuing its sponsorship of the RAF Typhoon Display Team throughout 2019. In addition to building the aircraft, Leonardo in the UK is responsible for delivering over 60% of the on-board avionics including leading the consortia that develop both the Typhoon's Radar and Defensive Aid Sub-System (DASS) from our Edinburgh and Luton sites respectively.
