KC Flight Formation Team
KC Flight, an RV Formation Team, is Kansas City's largest home grown civilian formation team. Founded in 2009 with 4 members, we continue to grow and currently have 14 members of which 8 are FFI (Formation Flying Inc.) carded pilots. The groups home base is Lee's Summit Airport (KLXT).
You may see us in the sky of the Greater KC area practicing, day or night. We have performed locally over Arrowhead Stadium for the Chiefs, Sporting KC, at airshows and at area High School Football games on Friday nights. We have even been accused of being UFOs from outer space!
The aircraft we fly are various models of the Van's RV line. They are very light on the controls, with an excellent range of performance. Stall speed is around 51 knots, while the max speed is 200 + knots. The aircraft are aerobatic with a G limit of +6 , -3. All of these factors combined make these great formation aircraft.
Formation flying is a perishable skill. We train our pilots to FFI standards and are constantly practicing day and night to maintain the high standards we expect.
