The RPA is an FAA-sanctioned signatory to the Formation And Safety Team body known as F.A.S.T.
This position allows us to train, qualify and manage civilian formation pilots in the United States and Canada for the safe conduct of formation flight displays in the US and Canadian air show industry.
The RPA Wing card qualifies pilots to fly in formation in FAA waivered airspace. And while many pilots do not fly in waivered airspace, the Wing card denotes competence to your fellow formation pilots.
Pilots the world over benefit from formation training at all levels while the public interest is maintained through our efforts to reinforce safety of flight.
The RPA has skilled Lead Pilots, Instructor Pilots, and Check Pilots to help provide its members with mentorship, training and ongoing flight opportunities through our numerous formation clinics throughout the year.
