Early life

Lintott was born in Canterbury, New Zealand, on 29 March 1955, the only son of three children to Brian, a school teacher, and Heather Lintott. When Graham was aged four, the family moved to Ruakiwi, a small regional town northwest of Hamilton, where the Lintott children were educated at the local school by their father. The family later relocated to Huinga, Taranaki, before returning to Hamiltion where Lintott attended Hamilton Boys' High School from 1968. Aged 15, Lintott began flying lessions through the Waikato Aero Club after winning $700 in the Golden Kiwi.


Lintott joined the RNZAF in 1973 and graduated from pilot training in 1975. He completed the Basic Sioux Helicopter Course and the Iroquois Course, before completing tours with No. 3 Squadron RNZAF and RNZAF Support Unit Singapore.

In the 1980s, Lintott was a member of the RNZAF Red Checkers formation aerobatics team.
