Piper Cherokee pilots are invited to join the 2022 mass arrival of Cherokees to Oshkosh for EAA AirVenture in Wisconsin.
Registration opened February 3 for the group, which welcomes newcomers as well as returning pilots.
“For the uninitiated, it is actually a very safe and simple way to arrive and provides the added benefit that you get to camp [at AirVenture] as a type group,” said Cherokees to Oshkosh participant Dick Filson.
All Piper PA–28 Cherokee, PA–32 Cherokee Six, and PA–24 Comanche pilots are welcome to participate. To qualify, pilots must meet minimum flying requirements, register, and successfully complete at least one formation flying mini-clinic before the July mass arrival. Ten mini-clinics are scheduled around the United States in 2022; the first is set to take place February 25 through 27 in Aiken, South Carolina. Clinics also will be in Sacramento, California; Madras, Oregon; Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina; Mount Pleasant, Texas; Gallatin, Tennessee; Columbus, Ohio; Jefferson City, Missouri; Preston, Minnesota; and Gladwin, Michigan.
Mini-clinics are free of charge. Registration is $150 if completed before March 31 and $175 by May 31 if spaces are still available. If, after attending a mini-clinic, you decide it’s not for you, the group will refund your registration fee.
