Aerobatics could be the most difficult challenge of Idris’s life; he is asthmatic, scared of heights and claustrophobic. When Idris sits in a plane, his enormous frame means his head is just 2cm from the roof.
But despite being daunted, Idris agrees to take to the air and perform at the Coventry Airbase Airshow in front of a crowd of thousands.
He’ll perform a routine of nine different aerobatic manoeuvres linked in a routine, competing against other experienced pilots.
He is mentored by Ed Cyster, one of the top aerobatic pilots in the UK. Ed is a team GBR competition aerobatic pilot who has amassed
mulitiple national trophies.
It’s one of the most terrifying moments of Idris’s life: but can he overcome his fears before it’s too late?
