Demonstrating the flying qualities of the Dassault Rafale and the French Air Force's fighter pilots, the Rafale Solo Display performs at roughly 15 air shows per year, including various large international air shows abroad such as RIAT, MAKS, Dubai, India, and Malaysia. The Rafale aircraft, generally a Rafale C single-seater, and solo display pilots and supporting team members come from the Rafale squadrons of Base aérienne 113 Saint-Dizier. For 2013-2014, Captain Benoit "Tao" Planche is the pilot supported by coach Captain Mickael "Micka" Brocard, who had been the Rafale demo pilot in 2011 and 2012. The schedule is announced in April following the last weeks of the season's training, which takes place at Base aérienne 126 Solenzara on Corsica, with the display season commencing in May.
