Our clients expect the best, both from their aircraft performance and their flightwear. Jays deliver the kind of quality these professionals demand. Our flightsuits are made to order and made to measure for each individual. Utilising our in-house resources, we manufacture the materials for the flightsuits, cut them to size, customise as required, sew and embroider name tags, unit flashes, insignia...whatever the client needs. Naturally, some of our clients prefer to have no 'tell tale' detailing at all. Others require 'Hi-Viz' as standard, alongside the best in weather-proofing and flame retardant properties. Whatever your requirements as a unit, team, crew or squadron, Jays Flightwear will deliver the goods! Our flightsuits can be customised in a wide range of styles; extra pockets, heavy duty 'rescue' epulettes, leg pockets, knife pockets, hi-viz flashes, name/unit/insignia, lightweight, heavyweight, windproof, rainproof, flame retardant, slash resistant...whatever you need in a flight suit, Jays can provide it. Join our client list today! We look forward to working with you.

Client Name: The Blades Display Team


After years of planning by its founders, The Blades came together in amazingly quick time. With four brand new aircraft purpose built in Germany and ready for flight on the British register by 20th March 2006, The Blades stood up on 1st April 2006. Over the next 30 days they flew 90 practices and were rewarded a Display Authorisation (DA) of down to 100ft as a formation and 30ft as singletons on 2nd May by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

2Excel launched its business two days later on 4th May at an exclusive event at Sywell Aerodrome attended by Jay Kay of Jamiroquai and the national and local press.

Just 11 days later on 25th May 2 Excel Aviation Ltd became a fully-fledged air line when it was awarded its Air Operator's Certificate (number GB 2299). This allows 2Excel to fly fare-paying passengers in the front seat of their aircraft in close formation aerobatics flights. The next day 2Excel ran its first corporate event for Breitling UK, entertaining and flying over 50 people on what was for many a life-changing experience.

The Blades' first display engagement was a world-class display in front of over 500 VIP guests to kick-off David and Victoria Beckham's Pre-World Cup Party on 21st May 2006. The display was a testament to the Team's professional heritage as the Beckhams' house is inside Stansted's Air Traffic Control Zone.

During the rest of the summer the Team displayed to more than five million people at over 50 venues across Europe, including The Cannes International Advertising Festival and the Queen's 80th Birthday Celebrations at Balmoral, and flew over 200 passengers on unforgettable formation aerobatic sorties.

Awarded its global accreditation for the airline on 12th January 2007, The Blades deployed to Bahrain in February 2007 for a highly successful Middle East Tour that featured displays for The King, the opening of the Bahrain Financial Harbour and the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

The Blades provide adrenalin charged precision formation displays but, as an aerobatic airline, they also offer unforgettable bespoke hospitality for corporate clients and experienced based learning programmes in Leadership, Development and Team-Building.
