PBY aviation heritage is shaped by the trials and tribulations, rich imaginations and varied experiences of the spirited and duty bound characters whose outstanding accomplishments have left a profound impact on the world.

We hope to focus our attention on the PBY in both war and peace time from WWII to the present time.

The public and personal stories, articles, humorous anecdotes and PBY specifications reflect a collection giving particular reference to the PBY achievements around the world.

Our philosophy at The Catalina Preservation Society is to help tell the story of the PBY preserving its memory and legacy through education, participation and preservation.

Self-education is I firmly believe the only kind of education there is
