Dan Friedkin grew up enraptured by flight. As a young teenager, he began flying gliders and quickly evolved to pilot a variety of tail-wheel aircraft and helicopters. By age 18, he was rated in the Lockheed Jetstar, and two years later became enthralled with the P-51 Mustang, thus beginning a life-long fascination with warbirds.
Dan enjoys participating in air shows throughout North America and Europe, flying right wing for The Horsemen. Additionally, Dan enjoys flying in commemorative displays around the world, most recently in the UK with the Eagle Squadron. He also flew as a Spitfire pilot in Christopher Nolan’s acclaimed 2017 film Dunkirk, which tells the dramatic story of one of WWII’s most important battles.
