Mission

Rhythm & Air

The dazzling Rhythm & Air routine is a stunning display which ties in the world of aerobatics connected with live music performed by the world-famous musicians NOISIA, dancers from  the Vienna State Ballet and classic music from the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, all built around the four elements of air, fire, earth and water.

Debuted in 2010 in Abu Dhabi, the Red Bull Air Race dare-devil dreamed up the routine in order to transfer his lightening quick reflexes and nerves-of-steel to a new medium. "For me this is a departure from my home territory of racing, so I hope everyone will enjoy it," says Arch.

The Flying Falcon, as he is known, earned his Red Bull Air Race World Championship title in 2008, and followed it up with second places in both 2009 and 2010, achieving a record-breaking four consecutive wins in the latter.The Austrian pilot's gift for aerobatics has seen him race all over the world, wowing spectators with his nail-biting performances. Having made a career out of climbing the worlds highest mountains, Hannes is sure to have visitors on the edge of their seats with his awe-inspiring aerobatic manoeuvres, hundreds of feet above the ground.Helping him to set the skies alight with his show all over the world will be his trusty Zivko Edge 540. This lightweight aircraft has the highest aerobatic thrust to weight ratio of any competition aerobatic aircraft. It is also capable of a 420 degree per second roll rate and a 3,700 foot per minute climb rate.
