The Canadian Formation Clinic took place from June 8 to 10, 2022, hosted by Flight Line Services and collaborated between Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association and Waterloo Warbirds at CYKF Waterloo International Airport.

The Canadian Harvard Aerobatic Team also participated in the event portion tied to the Canadian Formation Clinic Harvard Training. This included six Harvard aircraft, three from the Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association out of Tillsonburg, one from the Waterloo Warbirds and two privately owned.

The Harvard aircraft is a single-engine, advanced trainer designed by North American Aviation. It was used in Canada during the Second World War under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan. The Harvard is one of the most famous and successful trainers of all time.

The grounds of the three days clinic were to train and recertify pilots from across Canada on the Formation and Safety Team (FAST) standard.
