Mooney Caravan: 

2018 Flying Monkeys Formation Clinic

4-6 May 2018

Join us for a weekend of fun, flying, and fellowship in the Air Capital of the World!

 The primary goal of the formation practice session is to introduce the basic 2-ship formation procedures required for participation in the Mooney Caravan to Oshkosh 2018 formation mass arrival to AirVenture Oshkosh. For those pilots proficient in basic 2-ship formation they will have the opportunity to both refine their fundamentals and work on 4-ship procedures. Experienced formation pilots will be paired with new pilots to serve as safety pilots.
