Provider of instrument calibration and services, Trescal, has announced that it will be participating with the French Air Force’s precision aerobatic demonstration team, the Patrouille de France (PAF) during its tour of the US. The PAF tour commemorates the 100th anniversary of the US entry into World War One (WWI).
It has been more than 30 years since the PAF performed in North America. Trescal, with global headquarters in France, is one of a few companies invited to be part of this mission which underscores the historical relationship between France and the US. The dates of the tour are 23rd March 23rd – 6th May.
“Trescal has a longstanding relationship with the aeronautics, defence and space industries throughout the world,” commented Kathy Boyd, President of Trescal in the US. “Globally, the group generates more than 50% of its sales in this market sector. We are proud to be part of such an important event with such a dynamic presence.
“I sincerely thank the French Air Force and also the French Government to allow a mid-size company like us to participate in such a unique event with our US and Canadian friends, combining industry and history, and with our aerobatic aircraft included in the programme.” added Olivier Delrieu CEO Trescal Group.
The partnership with the French Air Patrol is highlighted by the participation of the Trescal Starduster SA300 aircraft. This aerobatics biplane is piloted by Jean-Marc d’Hulst, the Deputy General Manager of Trescal France, a qualified pilot in advanced aerobatics. The Starduster will fly and be on display at air shows attended by the PAF:
