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.

If you have family ‘Society membership then the concession will cover two adults and two children under 15. At the present time this great offer is only available until the end of September 2017 and it does NOT apply on air show days.

Would you like to spend a few hours getting to know how you can become closely involved with the operation of a famous, historic and airworthy aircraft? The Duxford-based Catalina Miss Pick Up has become a very popular and reliable airshow performer throughout Europe.

If the idea of being a part-owner of the Catalina and having the chance to get airborne with her appeals, get in contact now! The basic cost of a share is £19,750 and ownership will not only enable you to become a proud owner of a very special piece of aviation history but will open up opportunities to tour around Europe to visit air shows and other events.
This unique and exciting event will be held at Duxford on Sunday 15th October 2017 and further information may be obtained below:

Miss Pick Up flew this afternoon for the first time this year. A short 'shake-down' flight which was trouble free. Crew were Derek Head, Gareth Bliss and David Legg ably supported on the ground by Chris Hodson, Richard Symonds and Andrew Frost. Massive well-done to Garry Short
for getting the old girl to this point. The season beckons! ......

Here is a nice video about the French "Sécurité Civile" which is now based in Nîmes.
After 1min you'll see the Catalinas they had in the 60's (not sure if it's our own)
And all sorts of Canadair :)

Nous étions EN DIRECT de Nîmes-Garons dans notre JT de midi pour l'inauguration de la nouvelle base de la sécurité civile. C'est de là que décolleront les Canadair désormais. La base de Marignane est fermée.

Pima Air and Space full-size diorama!
What a great way to display a Catalina (not better than airworthy but still!)
