KC Flight Formation
KC Flight, an RV Formation Team, is Kansas City's largest home grown civilian formation team. Founded in 2009 with 4 members, they currently have 22 members of which 18 are FFI (Formation Flying Inc.) carded pilots.
You may see them in the sky of the Greater KC area practicing, day or night. They've performed National Anthem flyovers for the KC Chiefs, KC Royals, Sporting KC, KC Symphony, NASCAR, IRL, Lake of the Ozarks boat races and at multiple area High School Football games on Friday nights. They also perform at civilian and military airshows.
The aircraft flown are various models of the Van's RV Experimental aircraft line. They are very light on the controls, with excellent range an performance. Stall speed is around 51 knots, while the max speed is 200 + knots. The aircraft are fully aerobatic with a G limit of +6 , -3. All of these factors combined make these great formation aircraft.
Formation flying is a perishable skill. They train their pilots to FFI standards and are constantly practicing day and night to maintain their high standards.
