Black Cats Helicopter Display Team

About

Wildcat Solo

The Black Cats are an exciting two-man helicopter display team who thrill audiences at air shows with their dynamic flying displays in Wildcat helicopters.

The Team started in 2001 as the ‘Lynx Pair’ and have been the first official Royal Navy flying display team since the ‘Sharks’ disbanded in the mid-1990s.

Winning several awards over the years, the Black Cats are requested to display all over the UK and at many European air shows.

The aircrew and engineers are all volunteers from 825 Naval Air Squadron and the Lynx Wildcat Maritime Force based at the Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton in Somerset.

The name ‘Black Cats’ is derived from the fierce cat depicted on the now disbanded 702 Naval Air Squadron emblem and the term ‘blackcatting’ which is naval slang for one-upmanship – doing or owning something better than someone else.t
