Minimum requirement: An RPL or higher is a pre-requisite to the Formation Basic Course

Formation Advanced Course
The Formation Advanced Course further develops your formation flying skills and techniques in multiple aircraft formations (up to 5 aircraft) and introduces you to basic aerobatic formation flying. The Formation Advanced syllabus includes a minimum of 6 hours flying and 6 long briefings charged at our standard rates. Following successful completion of this course graduates will be eligible for a CASR Part 61 Formation Aerobatic Flight Activity Endorsement.

Costs: As standards of flying vary between pilots some will achieve the required standard before others so the amount you pay will vary depending upon your competency. The Formation Basic Course is based on a minimum of 6 hours and 6 long briefings charged at our standard rates. As you will need a formation partner the course should be done concurrently with another student otherwise you will need to hire another formation instructor and aircraft for the duration of the course.

Formation Flying

Tailwheel undercarriage or conventional undercarriage is a design feature which allows pilots to fly more advanced and manoeuvrable aircraft such as the Super Decathlon, Pitts Special and the Extra. This design feature requires pilots to be more attentive to handling the aircraft during take off and landing as well as taxiing. It is an excellent way to further increase your skills and confidence.

Tail Wheel Endorsement

The Constant Speed Unit (CSU) is the design feature that more powerful and efficient aircraft use in order to better utilise the power produced by the engine. The unit allows the propeller blade to change its angle of attack to take a more effective stroke through the air and to utilise the torque of the engine more efficiently.
