Noice one my man.

But you had to include the SAS A319 Retro.
There always space for that.

What are the ATC protocols that you have to follow in a formation?


Be a flight of…(insert number of people in formation) ATC will give instructions to the lead plane. All other aircraft follow lead plane.


You also need very good accuracy when it comes to turns and to be able to do a full hand landing, as if you did it with AP it would be very hard to land in formation.

I think Formation flights are allowed to fly with only a separation of 0.5 nm on final
