Formation Clinics & Flying Events

Clinics are the heart of our formation training process and they are BIG FUN! Held in various locations in the U.S. several times each year, participants enjoy well organized ground school and formation flight training with highly experienced instructors that taylor to the individuals goals and pace. Our philosophy is that the participant demonstrate proficiency in flying skills and “headwork” to a high standard of safety and teamwork. The F.A.S.T. cards are issued when these standards are met by the participant, as demonstrated and agreed by two Stearman Flight check pilots. Participants don’t always achieve the first certification step (2-ship wingman) during their first clinic.

Flying Events such as the Stearmans over Tullahoma fun flying that happens in May of each year at the fabulous Beechcraft Heritage Museum in Tullahoma, TN (KTHA).  Fun flying, camaraderie, good food and interesting speakers for the signature Saturday dinner.  Join the fun and fly a lot or a little and enjoy the fellowship of Stearman aviators.
