About This Site

Formation flying is an absolute blast. The goal may be to earn an airshow formation credential — or merely to get a group of two or more airplanes safely from point A to point B. When done properly and done well, it can be incredibly satisfying, and it looks great from the ground, too. That said, flying in formation is serious business! It's not the type of thing you want to just "go up and try" with your buddies.

Some of the pilots that support training activities also are members of the West Coast Ravens airshow formation team.  If you are looking for information about the Ravens, please visit their site here.


The resources on this site help coordinate safe, controlled formation training activity for pilots who want to perform to FAA-accepted formation standards: FFI (Formation Flying, Inc).  Below you will find a number of links that can help you get started with formation flying and connect with others who have the same motivation and aspiration.
