Anything can fly straight and level next to anything else, assuming the pilots have formation fundamentals. Clinics are about substantially expanding the safe formation envelope beyond straight and level, which leverages maneuverability, visibility and load factor.

If you have a chance to get a full orientation ride at a typical RV clinic, it will be clear to you why the RV-10/12 platforms are discouraged.

Once your -10 is done, check into Bonanza and Mooney clinics that train to FFI standards. The performance and maneuvering limits are comparable and I'm sure you will be more than welcome, as they generally accept other type aircraft with similar performance characteristics.

Are there any formation clinics that are either specific to the RV-10 or that accept the RV-10 in a mix with other RVs?

Just curious right now as I my RV-10 is still under construction. But I would like to give formation flying a try in the future, after completing Phase 1.

Default Falcon Flight Formation Clinic April 5-7

For those wanting to attend the Falcon Flight Clinic April 5-7 2019 we have created a group at https://groups.io/g/KGYI-2019-FormationClinic to handle the logistics.

Couple of questions asked:

Do we still have slots? YES! (Once we reach the limit we will publish it.)

Is there hangar space? NO, Please bring long tie downs as this used to be a military base so the tie downs in some spots are pretty far apart.

Keep the questions coming.

Default Falcon Flight Clinic Date Change

The WX is not going to cooperate for April 5-7 so we are rescheduling the clinic to April 26-28 and hope the WX will work out. The original link still is the best way to sign up. Hopefully those that could not make it due to Sun n fun now can!
And yes we do realize this is the same weekend as the KC Flight Clinic and this was our backup date due to our Airshow season starting.

Default Falcon Flight Formation Clinic NOW April 26-28

Falcon Flight will be hosting a Formation Training Clinic on April 26-28th, 2019 at the North Texas Regional Airport – KGYI. This is a closer location to those coming from the north/east than the ones we’ve held in the past. We have created a group at https://groups.io/g/KGYI-2019-FormationClinic to handle the logistics. Use the link to request membership in this group, then add a line with your information to the Clinic Signup Table.

We will be using this group for all information distribution. Further details regarding scheduling et al are forthcoming and will be disseminated through that group. We’re looking at a cost of $60 per person to cover van rentals, food, drink and other incidentals.

A limit of 32 participants is in place. Newcomers and advanced are welcome. We will also be going over the changes to 8900.1 that apply to carded pilots when operating within a certificate of waiver (airshows).

All hotel information is found in the FILES section of the group. If you have any intent on participating, make sure to get your room booked early before the group rate expires - you can cancel up to 48hrs prior to arrival at no penalty.

Default Still room

There are still some slots open for the Falcon Flight Formation Clinic if interested and not already attending the KC Clinic.
