Between the years 2000 and 2001, five pilots just got together to enjoy the challenge of formation flying and to promote a very unique aircraft – the “Twin-Tailed Tiger.” (Aircoupe)

Over these eighteen years, TigerFlight has become one of the most unique aviation programs in the country. TigerFlight motivates youth to become the pilot in command of their own lives and introduces them to a rewarding future in aviation. This is done through motivational presentations in the community, supporting the ROTC program at the TigerFlight hanger in Rome, GA. (KRMG), and Boy Scouts of America aviation badge program. Additionally, TigerFlight also performs formation flyovers for memorial services, air shows and sporting events. Please contact us!
A most unique flight team: TigerFlight is the only formation flight team in the world that flies the ”Twin Tailed Tiger,” in formation. TigerFlight is also the only civilian flight team in the world that has a direct connection to the famed, ”Flying Tigers,” of World War II, having received program approval by the family of General Claire Lee Chennault to use a rendition of the Flying Tigers squadron patch. The TigerFlight patch and tan flight suit are worn with great pride by the TigerFlight pilots in respect of the memory of those great American aviation heroes who served our country with such great honor.
