The Hellenic F-16 Demo Team was created in February 2010, continuing the legacy of the former aerobatic teams of the Hellenic Air Force (HAF): Carrè of Aces, Acro Team, Hellenic Flame, New Hellenic Flame and the T-6A Demo Team.

On 7 November 2010, the first official performance of the F-16 Demo Team was made during the Open Days of the HAF at Tanagra Air Base.
