Dragons are EXTREMELY powerful and I was wondering if I could get one to fight for me.

It does not appear possible to re-animate dragons. Although the Skyrim Wiki does point out that attempting to reanimate a dragon corpse may cause it to appear to "fly" temporarily, as seen in the below video.

Using a reanimate spell on Dragon corpses causes them to be pushed or thrown/flung wildly into the air.

By default you can't even reanimate giants not to mention the flying dragons.

There is also a bug that can cause dragons to be pushed or thrown/flung wildly into the air by casting reanimate..

Further on in the main quest line, you'll get a shout which calls a dragon to fight for you. Just keep on playing.
