THE STORY OF THE FLYING TIGERS

While many claim to be Flying Tigers, there are only 311 individuals who served in the AVG from July 4th, 1941 to July 4th, 1942. They are considered to be the only official members of the American Volunteer Group. Their names and classifications are listed here.

If you do not find the name of someone you believe to be a "Flying Tiger," and do not find his name on the official AVG Roster, that person might have been a member of the 14th Air Force, who also were called the "Flying Tigers." Please click on the following link to the 14th Air Force Association website to inquire further.

*** Denotes AVG members who did not fulfill their contract or were not honorably discharged when the Flying Tigers were officially disbanded on July 4th, 1942.
