Course Description

This course introduces the pilot to the special requirements of these unique flight conditions. The course consists of three hours of classroom instruction, one hour of ejection seat familiarization, one flight in an MB-326 Impala. The instruction and flight can cover all three of the subjects or can be focused on any area a particular student desires. The course would be beneficial to any pilot whose job requires formation, low-level, or chase flight.

The cost is per pilot, assuming that an even number of pilots attend for formation or chase training.  A preliminary sortie in light aircraft is possible at a slightly higher cost.
