The Flight Fireball is named after a well-known jet airplane. The Flight Fireball EQ-A Tenor features a solid mango body with dyed maple appointments, including a rosette, comfort edge, and scalloped cutaway. The mango tree, most popular for its tasty fruit, also serves as a stunning tone wood, both in appearance and sound. Mango has a sweet sound (pun intended) that is often compared to koa, while offering amazing grain patterns found with no other tone wood.

At Flight, we love to innovate with new and unusual ukulele designs that you won’t find anywhere else. With the Nighthawk models, we wanted to create a ukulele with some of the most popular features of the Spirit and the Mustang but with a twist! The result is a sophisticated looking uke with eye-catching appointments like blue pearloid cutaway and binding, square off-set fretboard markers, and a dark and moody ‘moonburst’ finish! The Nighthawk is like the sports car of the Royal series – precise, agile and not for the faint of heart!
You asked, and we listened! By popular demand, we proudly present the Aurora baritone ukulele, the first baritone in our Princess series, and it is definitely deserving of the title. This ukulele is majestic!

Remember that our baritone ukuleles are strung with DGBE tuning, which is the same as the bottom four strings of a guitar. Having said that, all your usual ukulele chord shapes will work, just for different names of notes and chords.
