The Catalina Society

The Catalina Society is the supporters club for the PBY5A Catalina!Our aim is to keep this beautiful old flying boat airworthy for many years to come. By forming the society, we have brought together people who share our aim. But more importantly, you will be joining a dedicated group of enthusiasts who can proudly associate themselves with their aircraft.

Our series of seaside appearance continues this coming weekend with a visit to the two day Weston Air Festival and Armed Forces Weekend at Weston-super-Mare. The Catalina will be flying on both Saturday and Sunday, operating out of Gloucestershire Airport situated between Cheltenham and Gloucester. We are delighted to be attending this show once again, having become 'regulars' in recent years. The location gives a great opportunity for spectators to get a good look at the Cat' as she flies along the seafront - give us a wave!

After a terrific visit to Lough Erne in Northern Ireland last weekend for water ops as part of the RAF100 celebrations and our display at Old Warden last Sunday, the Catalina is off to Scandinavia next weekend. We are displaying at the Flygdagen at Sola in Norway on Saturday 9th and the Danish Air Show at Aalborg in Denmark on Sunday 10th. Both countries operated military Catalinas so we look foreward to meeting our many fans there.
