Fly high in a De Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth WW2 Bi-plane gifted by Gary from New Zealand Warbirds Association
Thank you Gary and your trusty crew, you gave us some laughs and a couple of dicey moments in that truck, and thank you so much Brent Tasker for putting up your hand and helping us to help others.
Enjoy a scenic adventure flight like none other, seated in the rear of a De Havilland Tiger Moth. Built right here in New Zealand, this ‘Moth’ was a wartime trainer, serving with the Royal New Zealand Air Force for 13 years from 1942, before teaching numerous civilian pilots to fly. She wears her original RNZAF colours. Be inspired by the unique experience of the sights, smells, and sounds from this open cockpit bi-plane and re-imagine a bygone era. Generously donated by the NZ Warbirds Association, an umbrella body dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and operation of service aircraft in full flying condition. Nationwide, they are a vitally alive family of involved participants who provide a wide range of skills and support necessary to maintain and operate these classic aircraft.
