How to: formation flying?

I have a little question:
We often do travel in our planes in a Formation of 2 or more aircraft.

But since we always fly very close together, safe sky all the time alerts about the other formation planes.
Which is kind of annoying and the app is completely locked up while this alert is displayed.

Is there any way to create a formation in SafeSky, so that the other planes are ignored?

If actual there’s is no way, I would kindly like to request this feature.

Good news this feature exists since 2 years and works pretty well!!
I don’t know if you are a premium or a free user. This feature is accessible by the premium users.

Fly safe.

Thanks for your answer.
But how does it work?

I’m a premium user, but I couldn’t find out, how to use it.

As far I know, there is only that “squadron mode”. But this assumes that all my fellow pilots are SafeSky users, which not all are.

I would appreciate a function, where I could add all the aircrafts flying along with me to the “my aircraft’s” panel (with its callsign and transponder code).

And when I’m about to takeoff, I would like to select multiple aircraft which are flying along with me.

And from all those planes all alerts should be suppressed.

But if this already is possible, please tell me HOW


The squadron feature exists indeed already, for pilots using SafeSky and being ‘fellow friends’. There is a video on how to :

I agree that it is not really user-friendly and not fully developed to suit for different settings and needs of pilots. So thanks for your suggestion!
We will put it on our list of usefull add-ons in our app.

Best regards,

Thank you very much Paul.

I would appreciate very much, if you could implement this in the near future.
Because we do a lot of formation flying and it’s very distracting to have that alert all the time.
