FAST / RJI Clinic

June 02, 2017 12:00 PM EDT to June 07, 2017 12:00 PM EDT

Reno Stead Airport

Reno, NV

Once again, CJAA and RJI are planning a unique clinic at Reno Stead airport on June 2-7. Friday through Sunday will be primarily focused on standard FAST procedures and training. Monday and Tuesday will shift to RJI race prep for the upcoming Pylon Racing School (PRS) and National Championship Air Races. By combining resources and sharing the venue, this clinic will provide you two types of training in one event, saving you time and money.

This year, all meals will be no-host and we will collect donations for cost sharing at the event.

Last year, seven pilots plus six instructors combined for 28 total sorties. Saturday through Monday’s 18 sorties were focused on FAST training and procedures while Tuesday’s 10 sorties were based entirely on RJI racing procedures and maneuvers. Throughout the weekend, we focused on detailed briefs, disciplined procedures and some hard flying to put together the best training environment possible for everyone. The clinic featured nice weather with moderate temperatures and limited cloud cover. The normal winds at Stead were missing on Saturday and Sunday, but returned to normal on Monday and Tuesday.

Thanks to some excellent pre event planning by Jeff Turney and Rick Vandam, the Jet training and very busy Sport Class training meshed together well in the pattern and in 5 different training areas around Stead Airport. Alby Redick and the team at Aviation Classics provided world class support of fueling and ground support. Hometown Cafe hosted lunches and the Grand Sierra Hotel restaurants saw some excellent after hours pilot debriefs over steaks and wine.

Join us for the 2017 event for some of the best training available in Classic Jets!
