  • 61.58 rides starting on June 18 throughout event - Call Zach

Formation Training - The Jet Blast is an excellent training environment for FAST - Formation And Safety Team. We will have a safety officer, briefs, designated airspace, frequencies and a flight schedule to provide the environment for you to receive the best formation training offered in the Northeast.


There will be lead, instructor pilots, and back-seaters with military backgrounds at the event who will be ready to fly and to help sharpen your skills as a formation pilot. We will have check pilots at the event if you are ready for a FAST check ride. Likely there will be a professional photographer to fill an empty back seat to help record the event.


Whether you are new to formation flying, breaking off the rust to renew your certifications, or just here to join your fellow aviators in formation flight…we focus on safety and proficiency starting off with briefs and followed up by a debrief.


Aerobatic Training – Dan McCue will be arriving early on June 18 to provide aerobatic training and SAC check outs. The application for the aerobatic box is in process and we are looking forward to adding this program to our event.


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. We are eager to share the excitement of formation flying and welcome new CJAA members to our community.


Sign up Early Once we know how many people and jets are attending the event, planning and arranging the details will be easy and we will have the most buying power. Please sign up Early and make your reservations. We have evening meals, activities and plenty of hanger time to catch up with old friends.
