Team Raven is a formation aerobatic display team that formed in May 2014.

The birth of the team came after Steve sold his lovely Yak 52 and concentrated on flying his RV4 while at the same time building a brand new RV8.  During the build Barry was persuaded to purchase (by Steve) an already completed 8, and soon there were two RV8s flying close formation aerobatics around the Swansea area.  They were looking for more RV owners with formation and display experience. Gerald Williams was an obvious choice with a soon-to-be completed RV8, along with him he brought Mark Southern also with a recently acquired RV8. Originally flagged to have Gerald as the lead pilot, a recent mind-set change from Simon ‘Sid’ Shirley in February 2014 lead to the purchase of an RV4 and the Team had a leader.
