Matt Hall is a third generation pilot, former RAAF Fighter Combat (Top Gun) Instructor, international aerobatic pilot and in 2009 not only the first Australian to ever compete in the Red Bull Air Race World Championship, but also the first rookie to finish a Red Bull Air Race – and even the entire season – on the podium.

Matt Hall

He began flying at an early age with his father, making his first solo flight at age 15 in a glider before earning his airplane pilot’s license at age 18. Today, Matt is licensed in gliders, ultralights, hang gliders, powered aircraft, helicopters and military jets, and has logged over 5,500 flight hours in various types of aircraft.

Kerl Eyewear met Matt Hall while he was preparing for his Red Bull Air Race in Budapest.

Every day I work on my mental and physical fitness, but when I’m in the plane to do a loop at 380 km/h with the gravity of twelve times my body weight, I want to be able to rely on technology, the material and my team.
