Default Pine Bluff Formation Clinic date set!

The 2019 Pine Bluff Formation Clinic will be held from Friday Oct 25 to Sunday Oct 27 at Grider Field (KPBF) in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. No experience necessary. Guaranteed to be fun and improve your stick & rudder skills. Here's the link to our "Groups io" site for more information and to sign up!

Any questions feel free to contact:
Gerald Loyd 870-377-2728

Some photos and videos from last year are below:

Hope to see you there!

My problem with any clinic is that my -4 does not have rudder pedals in the back. Any provisions at your clinic for my scenario?

You can still benefit from the clinic.... on day 1 you will go thru the ground school. Then you get to ride with a carded pilot to get the feel of flying in close proximity to other aircraft. Also will get you accustomed to the standard FFI 4-ship practice routine. Then it will be Bulldog?s call about putting you into a 4-ship. You, as a beginner, would be color coded as red and known as a ?red scary?. But not to worry.... we were all red scary at one point.

Team Aerodynamix used to host an east coast clinic way back when. Since then, nothing. I have been travelling to the mid-west for clinics, and trust me, it is worth it!
