Renaud Ecalle, the most talented aerobatic pilot of his generation, lost his life on Sunday 03 October along with his wife Alice and their two children. The accident occured during a VFR cross country flight on board a Jodel DR 1050. They were trapped in bad weather.
All our condolences to his family, friends and the international aerobatic community.
Renaud was the last winner of the FAI World Grand Prix (2008), World Aerobatic Champion 2009, and newly crowned European Aerobatic Champion 2010.

20.04 : ONLY CHANGE IS ETERNAL
Since Aerobatics and "Flight Operas" do not raise any interest from sponsors, we will take off for other skies.
We will maintain this website for the archives of what were great events, but also for our videos, and just in case we find a gold mine to organise new events, flying to music ...
In the meantime, we will explain what is L.O.B., "the Language Of the Birds" that most people do not understand, and put this discovery online on a new website. Of course, it is more intellectual than air races, but it will last much longer since it has the potential to change your life...
Stay tuned !

29.01 : FUTURE PLANS
Organising aerobatic events has always been for us a public display of the big split between a philosophical idea and its spectacular representation. Basically, a search for “the Great Unity” through sport aerobatics...
At this point in time, our private adventure is facing a lack of financial resources, therefore a lack of public interest more attracted to “Air Race” than to “Air Opera”.
It means we have to modify our approach.
It will not change our support to aerobatics as an artistic development of the “Conjunction of the Opposites” concept, and we'll keep our main objective, fighting the Spirit of Gravity for the Great Unity...
Maybe we will not produce spectacular events with aircraft for some time but Haute Voltige will continue to provide you with the understanding of our very special aerobatic world through DVDs and other "cultural" products that can be downloaded online. You will find a source of aerobatic challenges that will be certainly cheaper than live events, but, in the same time, flying “higher”. You will have the opportunity to see the moon, no longer the finger that is pointing it out.
More developments on this website before the end of April 2010, please come and visit us again from time to time.
