Default Any more clinics in 2014?

Are there any more formation clinics scheduled for 2014 - either RV specific - or where an RV can be flown - to obtain a formation card?

Default Pine Bluff Clinic

John,
The Pine Bluff, Arkansas clinic is tentatively scheduled for the third weekend in Nov. There's just too much going on in October this year.

Weather can be an issue in November but we are hoping for the best.
For information contact Gerald "Bulldog" Loyd at 870-377-2728.

Mark

Default RPA Clinic on Sept 26-28

If you are on the East Coast and want to help out with a good cause while getting in some good practice, the RPA Formation Clinic is Sept 26-28. They are happy to have RVs and warbirds of all types. Corresponds with Easton Airport Day and the money raised from that goes to a good cause every year. Typical turn out for the formation clinic is 20 to 30 aircraft. Yaks, CJs, T-34s, and RVs. They are FAST qualified, but the training is pretty much the same. Airport Day info here: http://eastonairportday.com/

Sign up for formation clinic here:
http://69.167.161.137/meetinginfo.php?id=24
Reg is free. Not sure what, if any Fee will be held. If you are a first timer, make sure you let them know so they will have instructors available for you.

The Mid South Aviators are great hosts and put up a good clinic. Hopefully the weather will cooperate

Default Pine Bluff Formation Clinic UPDATE !!!!

Due to a cancellation of another formation event we now have a great date set for this clinic.

The 2014 Pine Bluff Formation Clinic will be held at Grider Field (PBF) from Oct 10 to Oct 12.

This is a great time of year to come to Arkansas!

Join the Yahoo group and enter your information in the data base to sign up. Joining the group does not sign you up for the clinic. Signing up only gives you access to some of the information. Entering your information in the data base is how you sign up for the clinic.

In the files section of the group site is a copy of the FFI Formation Manual and other info you need.
