APPI MASTER SIV / ACRO / XC
He does accro competitions since 2001 :
- 5th at the Redbull vertigo 2002
- 4th at the RedBull vertigo 2003

David invented the "rhythmic SAT" in 2001, which is now a required component of accro competition. He was the first pilot to excute 6 consecutives tumblings, during the RedBull Vertigo in 2001.
In 2002 I discovered a much more dynamic and cleaner variation of the "Mac Twist", which we now call the "Misty Flip". But it was Swiss pilot David ARRUFAT who amazed everyone at Vertigo that year when, during his sequence, he hit the brakes earlier than normal whilst entering a SAT and discovered the "Rhythmic SAT", which instantly became the top manoeuvre and the one everyone wanted to master.
