CAF Dixie Wing TRARON Formation Clinic

Please join us for a Commemorative Air Force TRARON Formation clinic at the Atlanta Regional Airport – Falcon Field (KFFC) from November 13-15, 2020.

All Commemorative Air Force TRARON members are welcome, and training will be offered in the T-6/SNJ/Harvard and T-34 Mentor. Participants will be able to become Commemorative Air Force and TRARON members upon check in at the registration desk prior to flying. Pilots seeking formation training in other aircraft should contact the organizers before registering to confirm sufficient aircraft are expected.

Ground school will be provided at 3PM on Friday the 13th for those needing initial formation ground instruction. Training will conclude Sunday the 15th with departure day being Sunday the 15th.
