The 2014 Scheyden Catalina Air Show is proud to host Southern California’s Premier Formation Flying Team, the Tiger Squadron! Tiger Squadron specializes in keeping crowds on their toes with a range of exciting formation flying maneuvers at events and air shows throughout Southern California. In our shows, we primarily use two aircraft, the Chinese built Nanchang CJ6A and Russian built Yak 52. Their 9-cylinder radial engines have gotten crowds on their feet at every event.
Tiger Squadron is a precision formation flying team and aircraft display team based in Southern California. The team consists of four to eight aircraft with displays that include multiple passes in exciting formations. The sweet roar of radial engines and Tiger Squadron’s skilled pilots and vintage warbirds are sure to thrill the audience. The team is made up of military pilots, instructors, airline pilots, and experienced civilian pilots with thousands of hours of combined experience, an unblemished safety record, and all required formation credentials.
The team has participated in flyovers for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, the USS Battleship Iowa, the Palm Springs Air Museum, the Santa Barbara Veterans Day Parade, Sun-N-Fun, Copperstate EAA, Green Hills Memorial Park, Pierce Brothers Memorial Park, Quail Motorsports Gathering, the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, the Cable Air Show, the Riverside Air Show, the Chino Air Show, the Camarillo Airshow, the Porterville Air Show, the Torrance Air Show, the Jacqueline Cochran Air Show and is excited to add the Catalina Air Show to their repertoire.
