Besides being a lot of fun, formation flying is challenging and an important safety skill when flying with others. Would you want the guy on your left to be without it?

The definitive instructional set on formation flying includes an exceptionally done two part, 4 hour of video by Darton International plus the Formation Flying Manual produced by the T-34 association video set. The video includes mostly air-air descriptions of all aspects of formation flight from both the pilot/ wingman's point of view and also that of an observer aircraft. Echelon, Fingertip, and Trail formation are covered with instruction and demonstration of station keeping, inside & outside turns, join-ups & break-ups, and takeoffs & landings. Hand signal communication and safety concerns are also covered in depth. The book details some of the technical information from the videos.
