Porterville, CA - KPTV

Click Here for more info and registration

This is the premier West Coast event for Eastern Block Aircraft and other interested Warbirds regardless of where your plane was made. We are a fly-in that is designed for pilots that focuses on formation training, camaraderie, and other fun flying events, as well as non-flying evening activities. Our event welcomes all warbird and formation friendly aircraft to participate at the event. It is a fact that this event is considered by most participants to be the best aviation event they attend each year.

FORMATION TRAINING
This an excellent training environment for FAST (Formation and Safety Team). We have briefs, designated airspace and frequencies, and a flight schedule to assist in getting you the best training and formation practice offered on the West Coast. There are many Leads and Instructor Pilots at the event who are ready to mentor you as a formation pilot. Come to learn the art of formation training or come to dust the rust off your old formation skills. Safety and proficiency is emphasized from the briefs through the debriefs. It is preferred that you come with a little formation experience, but we are set up to start you from the beginning. We have check airmen at the event if you are close to the skills required for a FAST checkride.

MENTORSHIP
Are you new to the Red Star community and looking to learn more about the people, the planes, and get to know others who enjoy aviation the way you do? This is the place to meet like minded pilots and become part of our fraternity. This is the perfect event for the newbie as well as the veteran formation pilot.

Not interested in formation flying?
No problem! Each afternoon we have flying events that will challenge your flying skills, while still having fun. We have perpetual trophies and bragging rights if you win the event.

The fun doesn't stop after the planes are put into the chocks. We have evening events that highlight the fun from our flying which gives you plenty of time to hangar fly and catch up with old friends. The event is all inclusive and meals are included in the event fee.
