AeroSPARX are the only team in the world to combine Formation flying, Aerobatics and night time pyro!

We are an aerobatic stunt display team who have brightened up airshows across the world with our smooth, graceful manoeuvres and quality formation flying. Perhaps best known for their stunning wing-tip pyrotechnics. AeroSPARX have been dazzling audiences with their remarkable demonstrations as far afield as Saudi Arabia and New Zealand.


Established in 2015, pilots Guy Westgate and Rob Barsby, regularly take to the skies in their Grob109b motor gliders. By day, they perform a formation flying display with aerial acrobatics, while at night they quite literally shine with their unique pyro fireworks display.

Based in the UK, AeroSPARX have had a busy few years captivating audiences across Europe, Asia and New Zealand, with many more fascinating locations lined up for 2018.

There are hundreds of flying display acts world wide, but only about 200 formation teams. Only half of these perform formation aerobatics and only 6 of these teams fly with pyro.... only 1 team does it all at night - AerosSPARX are globally unique!

 Muscle Biplane Pitts S2S G-EWIZ

The original Pitts was designed by Curtis Pitts and first flew in 1945. G-EWIZ is a Pitts S2S, one of only 30 aircraft ever built.  Most were certified production Aircraft, but a few, including G-EWIZ were home built from factory kits.

The Pitts S2S was purpose designed in the 1960’s for competition and Air Show Aerobatics.  

G-EWIZ is powered by six cylinder, 8.5 litre engine, producing over 300HP. It has a flying weight of 700 Kg, a top speed of over 200 mph and capable of pulling plus 6 g and minus 5g.

The biplane gets its strength from the box like structure of the wings with the top and bottom wings connected by diagonal steel wires to give it rigidity.  

Richard is passionate about building and flying Biplanes and G-EWIZ has been modified specifically for aerial entertainment at air shows.  

Modifications include new titanium landing gear, new shaped cowling, Skydynamics cold induction system, and an Airflow Performance fuel injection and smoke system.  

Richard is also in the process of building new revolutionary Blade Wings, designed by Eddie which will be used on the new Jet Pitts. They are an ultimate wing for the Pitts and will give a much improved roll rate.
