ATC for flight in formation


Is there a way for a formation of 2 planes to be vectored to an airport, and even land almost at the same time?

I was wondering if the “flight of x” call sign was for this?

It would be great if fighters were allowed to fly in tandem or more, as long as the call sign makes it clear that this is the intention and ATC understand this.

Yes, the “flight of x” is for formations. The idea is that one pilot does all the ATC communication and the others follow them.


Great, I’ll give it a try! And so ATC would permit almost simultaneous landings / takeoffs?
