After returning from the U.S. tour in 2016, with special tail decorations, the Patrouille de France began looking into a new livery for its aircraft.
The new color scheme, designed by Régis “Rage” Rocca and applied to all aircraft, was presented in November 2017.
The emblem commemorating the 65 years of the Patrouille de France was added to this color scheme, on the right side of the Alpha Jets, in 2018.
The Franco-German Dassault-Breguet/Dornier Alpha Jet trainer is a twin- engine tandem t wo-seater easy and safe to pilot. I ts design is as simple and light as possible.
The performance and reliability of the Alpha Jet designated it as the replacement model for the Fouga Magister for the Patrouille de France French Air Force aerobatics
team as of 1981. The aircraft is perfectly suited for flight demonstrations because of its excellent flight characteristics and absence of dangerous reactions in spin and in stall and in transonic flight.
In total, 512 Alpha Jets were produced, of which 329 were exported, for ten Air Forces.
