The Red Arrows schedule is usually announced at the end of March each year.

Red Arrows Schedule 2020.
The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows fly nine BAE SYSTEMS Hawk T.1 advanced trainer aircraft and are currently based at RAF Scampton in Lincolnshire.

Red Arrows Training:
The Red Arrows begin training for the forthcoming season almost as soon as the previous year has ended.

Typically, winter training starts in October, with small groups of three or four aircraft formations. Each pilot flies three sorties a day, five days a week, and the formations grow in aircraft number as training progresses. These flights involve a thorough brief, debrief and discussion to ensure safety is paramount and the formations are precise. One complete cycle consisting of these elements lasts about two hours, usually with a 30-minute flight.

Winter training lasts until mid-March, when the team usually moves overseas to a location with more predictable, settled weather to maximise flying hours and perfect the display. This is known as Exercise Springhawk. During Springhawk the team is assessed by senior Royal Air Force officers, with the aim of gaining Public Display Authority. If this is awarded, the Squadron's pilots change from green coveralls into their famous red flying suits and the ground crew are allowed to wear their royal blue display coveralls.

The season then officially begins and public performances by the Red Arrows are permitted.

Types of Display:
There are three types of display the Team Leader can elect to fly - full, rolling or flat. To carry out a full, looping, display the base of the cloud must be above 5,500ft to avoid the aircraft entering the cloud at the top of the loop. If the cloud base is less than 5,500ft, but more than 2,500ft, the team will perform the rolling display - substituting wing-overs and rolls for the loops. And when the cloud base is below 2,500ft, the Team will fly the flat display, consisting of a series of flypasts and steep turns.

Red Arrows Team Pilots for the 2020 season:
Red 1 - Sqn Ldr Martin Pert (Team Leader)
Red 2 - Fl Lt Will Cambridge
Red 3 - Fl Lt Nick Critchell
Red 4 - Fl Lt James Turner
Red 5 - Fl Lt David Simmonds
Red 6 - Fl Lt Jon Bond (Synchro Leader)
Red 7 - Sqn Ldr Gregor Ogston (Synchro 2)
Red 8 - Fl Lt Damo Green
Red 9 - Sqn Ldr Steve Morris (Executive Officer)
Red 10 - Sqn Ldr Adam Collins (Supervisor)
Officer Commanding - Wing Commander David Montenegro

The new Red Arrows pilots joining for the 2020 season are Flight Lieutenants Will Cambridge, Nick Critchell and James Turner.

There is actually a 10th Red Arrow which is flown by the Team Manager who provides commentary during the display.

New Red Arrows Team Leader aims to inspire with dynamic air display.

Links and Trackers

Red Arrows NOTAMS & Map Routes:

NOTAMS (Notice to Airmen) are published to alert aircraft pilots of potential hazards along a flight route or at a location that could affect the safety of the flight.

The NOTAMS consist of co-ordinates, place names and timings which give an idea of the route that the Red Arrows might take. Bear in mind that due to weather or operational contraints then the route and timings may change at short notice.

This page contains Google maps based on NOTAMS to give people an idea of the route, but it may not always be accurate.

Timings in the NOTAMS are usually in Zulu Time or Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), but on this page it is converted to British Summer Time (BST), during the Summer, to make it easier to understand.

Red Arrows Relocation
RAF Scampton will be closed by 2022 and the Red Arrows relocated to another RAF base.

In May 2020 it was announced that the Red Arrows would be based at RAF Waddington and relocation will take place before RAF Scampton closes in late 2022. The airspace over RAF Scampton will be retained for the team's training and display practice.
