Scuola Alta Velocità


In the latest number of FlyPast (December 2018) there is a couple of interesting articles about the Schneider Trophy. In the article of the Italian participants (“Italian Stallions”) the “Scuola Alta Velocità” is mentioned. Is there anyone, who have a complete rooster of the pilots that went through this school?

I know following pilots:
Ernesto Botto ( – he continued to use the issued red flying helmet during the beginning of the Second World War, possibly to be better recognizable by his men in the heat of the combat.
Dulio Fanalli (
Mario Bacich

My main question is if there were more of the pilots from the school that became successful combat pilots/leaders during the Spanish Civil War and/or World War II?
