Download and read the Mooney Caravan Formation Guide prior to attending the clinic. The FFI Formation Guide, including the Mooney Supplement, can be found on their website: www.ffi.aero.

Ground school, and first timers:  Watch the Video of the ground training also in the training section of the Caravan website. There is a lot of information on the Caravan website. Please do not wait until the night before the clinic if this is your first formation experience.  The important items will be reviewed at the Basic Formation Ground School before we fly Friday, You need to have read the Guide(s) so that the information presented at the briefing will be somewhat familiar to you.
