Comments on Display:  I booked the display as a surprise for my wife and guests at our wedding. So many people have commented on how good it was. The mid air stall had people gasping! The entire display was varied and almost every move was something different. Nigel got the plane so low you could actually see him in the cockpit. The smoke was a great touch and despite the poor cloud cover you could still see the heart that he drew in the sky with the smoke. Amazing, and I thoroughly recommend this for a wedding. VERY VERY good value for money.
Recommendations to other organisers:  All I did was book. Nigel and Debs took care of the rest. They liaised with the venue staff, videographer, photographer and toastmaster to make sure the guest were in the right place at the right time.

The whole party oohed, aahed, and woahed throughout and well and no-one will forget our wedding in a hurry! Thank you!!!!!
Recommendations to other organisers:  Easy to communicate with and flexible with exact time of display to suit when the party were actually ready to get out onto the lawn. Very discreet in the day.

Comments on Display:  This was one big challenge for Nigel. To impress an audience of pilots and crew who fly Air Ambulance and Police helicopters for a living, on a damp April afternoon, especially after the bride and groom had just arrived by helicopter. However, Nigel succeeded in every respect with an amazing display of skill, fun and real wow factor. The crowd were in absolute awe and particularly loved the heart he crafted in smoke. A huge thank you to Nigel and Debs for your flexibility, seemless organisation and a truly incredible and memorable display. As a surprise gift to newly weds on their special day, the Yak display simply could not be bettered.

Comments on Display:  As most of us are ex RAF Regiment we have - over the years - been involved in many air shows. We can say without a doubt that the display given by Nigel Willson and his Yak is up there with the best of them. The commentary given by Debbie is not only enlighting and informative - it is humourous too!
Recommendations to other organisers:  To any organisation, or individual, planning an air display - contact Nigel. He not only gives a brilliant display he even completes the necessary paper work.!!!!!! If not used to this - believe me it can be a bit of a bind. So if you want a really first class air display please contact Nigel Willson at YAK 52 AEROBATIC DISPLAY. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you both so much for making our village festival the one to remember.
Recommendations to other organisers:  If you have not seen Nigel fly this wonderful aircraft, look on his web site to see where his next performance is and GO. If you can't go and want to book him , I can honestly say, 'you be stunned and amazed ans definitely not disappointed.

Your manoeuvres on top of climb had me worried for a sec, I was about to reach for the crash phone!! Pleased you started the engine in the appropriate fashion!

Name/Email:  Carl Bennett
Location/Name of Display:  Yoxford, Suffolk
Comments on Display:  Absolutely stunning! Despite cloud down to 1800 feet Nigel gave us a fantastic 15 minutes of stunting over our village fair that brought in people passing on the A12. Quite why or how he likes being upside down spinning backwards is utterly beyond me, but we were glad he does. Really good value and a really good involving display.
Recommendations to other organisers:  1) Don't think about it - book Nigel. His fee is incredibly reasonable and you get a commentary as well as the chance to meet the pilot.

2) Talk to him and he'll come up with ideas so you get exactly the display you want. I thought there should be another zero on the end of his bill. There isn't. He's definitely being booked for next year.

Location/Name of Display:  Elmsett Airfield Open Day
Comments on Display:  The day was superb and so were the displays, and Nigel's bigger and better show is really astounding. This is a really skilled performance, smooth and beautifully executed. The sheer amazement comes from 'how did he do that' so cool and controlled you secretly think you would like to try! Eat your heart out Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
Recommendations to other organisers:  Nigel brings a really polished performance to your event. He reasures you with his attention to detail and ease in which he manages the statutory needs and the location of his cotribution to the overall activity of your day. A gem to work with, great value for money and he brings a following! Each year Nigel has added to his show, the smoke is pretty but the action awesome, you know your guests are in for a treat.



Name/Email:  Chris Reynolds
Location/Name of Display:  Parham Airfield, Suffolk
Comments on Display:  The display was to a very high standard of precision with a great variety of combinations. The latest addition of "smoke on" adding to the larger Sky Eaters. The effect of Nigel's flying on women must be guarded against, some go decidedly weak at the knees and have difficulty breathing between the screams.
Recommendations to other organisers:  The whole audience will be entertained, thrilled, excited and filled with admiration.



Name/Email:  Duncan Skeels
Location/Name of Display:  Rougham Airfield, Suffolk
Comments on Display:  Nigel never fails to deliver a top rate performance and with this seasons addition of 'smoke' his normally outstanding display was enhanced even more. With the unusual weather conditions (hot sunny weather!) Nigel's display was magic!
Recommendations to other organisers:  I cannot recommend Nigel enough, the spectators are enthralled and he's always willing to chat to people. He's a real bonus for any display..book him now!



Name/Email:  Jeannie Wright
Location/Name of Display:  Elmsett Airfield
Comments on Display:  It is great to have Nigel, particularly as he is a 'home ' based pilot, to fly for us on our Annual Open Day at Elmsett Airfield. Nigel always graces the sky with a breath taking performance and certainly knows how to amaze and delight the crowds. A pilot that brings the ohhhh wooowwww factor to young and old alike, but is also so easy to work with - knows what he is doing and what he needs and you know he has thought of everything. Thanks Nigel- see you 12th July 2003.
Recommendations to other organisers:  Nigel brings a wealth of knowledge about his flying and how to organise what he does. The paperwork involved is very straight forward and as long as you plan with Nigel exactly what he and you require you will have no problems. Nigel helps us raise money for local causes and can often come up with ideas that solve the 'and how are we going to do that' problem. Nigel comes highly recommended from home base.

RAF and USAAF members present were very impressed with the display.
Recommendations to other organisers:  Nigel is a very professional display pilot and very reliable. I have asked him to perform at the next MHAS Aviation 'Open Day'(14th September 2003)and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Comments on Display:  Nigel opened our annual Air Display with a superb slot that thrilled the crowd. After having to hold for 10 mins until a thunderstorm passed Nigels balletic performance got the attention of a rather wet crowd, the combination of his excellent routine and the sound of the Yakolev engine is a real pleaser.
Recommendations to other organisers:  Have booked Nigel for several other events and he has NEVER let me down, professionally excellent at a sensible price, I thoroughly recommend him to other FDD's!
