Mentorship - Are you new to the Jet Warbird community and looking to learn more about the people, the planes, and get to know others who enjoy aviation the way you do? The CJAA Jet Blast is the best place to meet like-minded pilots and become part of our fraternity. 

Formation Training - Formation and Safety Team. We will have briefs, designated airspace, and a flight schedule to assist in getting you the best formation training offered in the Southeast. There will be many lead and instructor pilots at the event who are ready to mentor you as a formation pilot. Join us to learn the art of formation training or just dust the rust off your old formation skills. Safety and proficiency is emphasized from the briefs through the debriefs. We will have check pilots at the event if you are ready for a FAST checkride.

The fun doesn't stop after the planes are in 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.
