JLFC Casa De Aero Pre Oshkosh Formation Warm Up Clinic

This clinic is a great way to start or continue your formation training. For you Leads, you'll get some proficiency and ability to pay it forward. It's also a sure-fire way to make sure you meet the currency requirements to fly with the Warbirds-L&O's at the AirVenture (Oshkosh) Warbird shows.

All JLFC members are welcome, and training will be offered in any JLFC warbird aircraft. (Pilots seeking formation training in other aircraft should contact the organizers before registering to confirm aircraft can be accommodated.)

Trainees must review our FAST Formation Maneuvers Guide before attending, paying particular attention to their specific aircraft requirements. First-time clinic participants may find this Check List useful.
The "Casa" clinic is at Dekalb Taylor Municipal Airport, KDKB, DeKalb, IL. Arrival day is Thursday July 18th, 2024, and the clinic will begin with a ground school that evening for any participants pursuing a qualification (Wingman or Lead). Attendance is mandatory for participants who have not attended a formal, instructor-taught ground school. There will be a mandatory safety briefing at 0800 on Friday. Note: runway 09/27 and taxiway "A" will be closed for construction during the summer while we are there.

We will depart for KOSH on Sunday, July 21st as one or more flights.
