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.

The guys from www.seaplane.com visited us at the Wings & Wheels show at Uetersen-Heist near Hamburg last weekend and they have put some great material about the event
on their website. Take a look at vhttps://seaplanemagazine.com/2018/08/15/visiting-wings-wheels-2018-in-hamburg/

Thanks to Jason Baker and Chris Buckner for their support.

Now in Uetersen Heist in Germany for this weekend's show after a great few days in Poland. The water ops there were very successful and much appreciated by the public and the show organisers. The photo below was taken by Michal Prokurat.

Say hi to our teammate Angelo 🤗

We spent a day in the skies with the 75-year-old Catalina flying boat ahead of this weekend's Bray Air Display. Captain Angelo Cunningham appealed for those attending to give them a wave! He said: “If the boys and girls keep an eye out they might see the crew chief Nick in the blisters waving out and if they see him we’d appreciate if they wave back at him.”

Following a great weekend at Farnborough we now look forward to next weekend and two seaside shows on either side of Ireland. Based out of Weston Dublin, we will be flying at the Foynes Air Show on the west coast on Saturday 28th July and at the Bray Air Display on the east coast on both Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th. We had a great time displaying at these two events last year and can't wait for our return visit! If you live in those areas or are lucky enough to be on holiday there next weekend, do come and see us display.

Garry Short, our indefatigable engineer, has now been able to replace the faulty instrument that kept us grounded at the weekend and we are looking forward to flying the Catalina down to Farnborough on Friday for static display at the International Airshow. The Cat' will be on display for three days, returning to our Duxford base on Monday 23rd. If you are planning to attend the 'show, do seek us out and meet the crew manning our sales stand.
