Please contact Jon Boede with your training needs (e.g. wing training, four-ship formation, recommendation ride, check ride, etc.)

For the Wing Training school, you need to have read the manual in advance. Come Prepared! If you are not familiar with the manual you will be wasting your time and your instructor's time.

Formation manual is available from the RPA Formation Manual Page.
