The World Championship winning team of Simon Baker and Pegasus Aviation of Marlborough have been specially chosen by Richard Noble to assist his ThrustSSC project in their attempt on the first Supersonic World Land Speed Record. The latest Pegasus Quantum 912 aircraft will be flown by Simon and his partner David Lane (current Co-Round Britain Record holder) for track inspection and aerial safety surveying during ThrustSSC record runs.
Simon and David, who own the Microlight flying company of Freedom Sports Aviation were asked by Mr John Fack, Marketing Director of Pegasus Aviation, to form Team Pegasus for this task. With their experience of expeditions and difficult situations the team will also provide aerial photography and transport in the deserts to support the ThrustSSC project.
Team Pegasus's "high tech" flying support for Thrust's Supersonic Project are aided by Ozee Leisure Clothing, Lynx Communications, Rohan Designs, Pegasus Aviation, Freedom Sports Aviation and Robinson Corporate Insurance Brokers.
