TEMPLE, TX — The skies will be filled with planes across Temple over the weekend as Falcon Flight holds a flight formation clinic.

The Texas based flight formation group will be at the Draughon Miller Airport for a clinic where pilots fly experimental category RV aircraft.

The clinic is for those who are new to formation flying. They can learn in a safe environment to be certified to fly in air shows.

Many of the pilots fly airplanes that they have built themselves.

Unlike a plane built in a factory, each plane is customized to the way the pilot wants it, even the layout of the instrument panel.

"People who built their own airplane and flown it, I've heard a year or two later look at that plane and tell me 'I look at that airplane and I just can't believe I built that,'" said Roy Geer, a flight lead for Falcon Flight.

Groups of two and three will be in the air tomorrow performing formations throughout the day. On Sunday, they plan to perform a mass formation around 10 AM.
