Default We are at capacity !

Hello all !

Happy (and sad) to report that we've reached the sign-up limit for the clinic this time around !

We are super pleased about the response we've been getting for this training session.

Don't despair however ... there is a WAIT LIST table created for the sole purpose of showing your desire to participate if/when people have to cancel. The closer we get to the actual date, there is always some fallout. So chances are still very good that if you are early on the wait list, there will eventually be a spot.

So, we are still approving new members to the group. The Main signup table has been locked down - but go ahead and add your name to the wait list table. We'll traverse this list on a first come first serve basis as spots open up. You will be notified by email - if we don't get a confirmation from you within a day or two, we'll move on to the next person in the list. It's only fair.

For those already signed up - please be considerate, and if you know you cannot make the date (we all know that plans change!), let us know ASAP and REMOVE your table entry so that we can give the spot to the next pilot in line.

Looking forward to a great clinic - stay tuned !

Default Falcon Flight Formation Clinic Update 4/4/2020

Good Morning Formation Flyers,
As we all know we are living in unprecedented times. With the extension of social distancing and limitations of Bell County where the Temple airport is located we have decided to move the clinic to the last weekend of May. The new formation clinic dates will be Friday May 29 - Sunday May 31, 2020. There will be NO back up weekend as we will not have access to facilities and it will have become too hot by June here in central Texas. ALL hotel reservations have been cancelled EXCEPT those staying at the Holiday Inn. Those at the Holiday Inn or any other hotel you made reservations with will need to be cancelled by YOU! Again, ALL reservations at the Residence Inn our primary hotel have been cancelled by Scroll. That said we know a lot of people have been directly impacted by CV-19 both physically and financially. So please take some time to reflect on your situation and whether or not signing up for this clinic is truly viable for you.

What we are doing is pushing the present sign up list and alternate list forward to be fair to those that have signed up. Now, if after reflecting on your situation you decide to not attend we ask that YOU remove your name from the list. Please email Shorts and Luke that you have removed your name as well. That way we can move folks in that are still planning to attend. We know and understand that there is still a lot of unknowns with this CV-19. We are just trying to move forward and get life going again. We will adjust as required and are having ongoing discussions among the organizers to try and plan. We have no idea what the guidelines will be with social distancing etc. We know our facilities can accommodate some social distancing. We do know if social distancing requirements stay in place we will not be able to put safety pilots in with newbies. Also, due to us planning on shuttling pilots via a crew van to hotels this will take us out of the game as well. We just want you know we are discussing all the challenges CV-19 is bringing to the table and will update you as we know more and develop a plan. We all believe it is very important to move forward but as with the primary focus of every clinic and formation hop...SAFETY FIRST!

Now for those of you that have made it this far thru this email we still encourage to you sign up on the alternate list.
https://groups.io/g/KTPLClinic2020
We will update everyone as we get closer in. Do stay positive and safe. We will get life and formation flying going again!

Default Still have space?

Hey folks I am interested in joining the clinic if space is still available.
I figured some pilots may not be able to adjust schedules. I am available and want to join in.
Let me know if you have more room for another RV-8.

Mike,
There are 37 signed up as primaries, plus 9 on the waiting list (3 of them will move forward to fill the primary list to our max of 40). Please feel free to sign up on the Falcon Flight Temple Formation Clinic Yahoo list:
https://groups.io/g/KTPLClinic2020

The Databases tab on the left side is where you sign up. We'll know within the last week or so how the final list gels out, and will contact everyone.
