Pace Plane

The Pace Plane is one of the most important part of the race - it’s the leading plane of the formation. It’s used to pace the racers in an orderly way according to ARC Rules and Regulations. It is flown by a certified military pilot and has a second occupant, selected by the ARC organization, for observation survey and control. 

We were looking for a single engine aircraft, low wing, metal fuselage and retractable landing gear, with incredible maneuverability and tough as steel, with spacious cockpit to accommodates two crew members. Around the world, there are several aircrafts with this special characteristics, but we’ve just select the best.
