The GEICO Skytypers are a flight squadron of six vintage SNJ-2 WWII era aircraft performing precision flight maneuvers at the 2019 New York International Air Show. The diverse flying expertise of the team members aligns perfectly with the unique components of their overall performance.

 

The World Famous GEICO Skytypers airshow team is a flight squadron of six WWII-vintage U.S. Navy SNJ trainers . The team performs a thrilling, low-altitude, precision-formation flying demonstration filling the sky and coming from all directions to provide spectators a unique viewing experience while showcasing the tactical maneuvers utilized in the Second World War.

 

In addition to their air show performances, the GEICO Skytypers also “type” giant messages in the sky. Known as the world¹s largest text messages, skytyping is 17 times faster than skywriting and produces a letter every four seconds in a dot-matrix pattern. The messages are as tall as the Empire State Building, can extend up to 8 miles in length, and are visible up to 15 miles in any direction — or for nearly 400 square miles. In between air shows, these messages can often be seen at major events and venues in the Northeast near the team¹s home base at Republic Airport in Farmingdale, NY.

      This is the small fee that goes to the box office ticketing company to provide support and care for our patrons.

      Hey Richard, we do usually partner with a couple of plane crews that do recreational flights for a cost – we’ll be posting it here on the website as we get closer to the show, as well as sharing it out on our Facebook page and email newsletter. The flights are done through a completely separate organization in conjunction with the show, so once they start taking inquiries, we’ll be sure to let you know. You’ll then work directly with them to arrange a flight if you’d like.
