Training

Here are the dates and locations for 2017 Mooney training clinics. Please check back often as additional training clinics will be added around the country.

Formation training clinics are organized across the nation by our team as well as our very supportive colleagues in the Bonanzas to Oshkosh (B2OSH) and Cherokees to Oshkosh groups. If you can't attend one of the clinics above, please check out the Bonanza and Cherokee clinics. Mooney pilots who have participated in these clinics have been warmly welcomed by Bonanza and Cherokee pilots and immediately made part of their community. 
  • Mid-Atlantic Wing Formation Clinic - Lynchburg, VA - June 23 - 25

The Mid Atlantic Group of the Mooney Caravan (MAG) will host a 2017 East Coast Regional Mooney Caravan Clinic scheduled for the weekend of 23-25 June (rain dates of 8 or 15 July) at KLYH (Lynchburg, VA). The Clinic will provide mentoring and qualification to new and returning pilots to fly the Mooney Caravan to AirVenture 2017 at OSH.

The schedule is to arrive at KLYH NLT 1100 on Friday, 23 June, with that afternoon devoted to ground school and demo flights. Returning Caravanners are encouraged to attend the ground school as a refresher. Qualification/training flights are scheduled for Saturday extending into Sunday according to individual requirements. Please use this link to register:

You will be met at the FBO, attend the ground school and a demo flight, then scheduled transportation will take you to the Fairfield Inn. You need only show up, we’ll do the rest. Expect a registration fee of $80 for a really nice tee shirt, lunches, and to cover incidentals and gratuities for the hotel/FBO staff. We have some great dinner events planned.

We selected KLYH as it offers a centralized location, 150’ runway, control tower, no restrictive airspace, proximity to the hotel (5 minutes), and most importantly, a courtesy van. Restaurants are within walking distance, and we have negotiated a reduced rate ($109) at the Fairfield Inn. Use this link to reserve your room:

Be advised that there are a limited number of Kings and Queens available so you would be best served by reserving early if you want a choice.

The Mooney Caravan offers a unique opportunity to learn a new flying skill, become a more proficient pilot, make friends with a like-minded group of pilots, and fly a formation mass-arrival at OSH. This is serious fun, and I encourage you to explore this opportunity. We will be in touch with you closer to the event with more details, but in the meantime if you have any questions or just want to discuss the Caravan please call me at 703-304-7406 or email at jpr6353@comcast.net.

Plan to attend the sixth annual Gunfighters Formation Clinic in Yuma AZ for your Mooney Caravan formation training and proficiency. Join us for a weekend of Fun, Flying, and Fellowship in the Air Capitol of the World! This year we are expanding formation education and training opportunities to include the Red Star Pilots Assn for the second year. This will be a multifaceted event with something for everyone and the opportunity to “step up your game”. Learn and improve your formation skills from well qualified pilots in a setting optimized for training efficiency and effectiveness. Airshow type performances from F-35’s, AV-8’s, FA-18’s, and helo squadrons are a daily added bonus.
