Description

New Zealand has a proud history of powered flight dating back 100 years to the pioneering escapades of Richard Pearse. Since then, hundreds of different aircraft have been seen in our skies together with many record-breaking pilots. Thanks to a growing number of individuals, groups and organisations dedicated to preserving our rich aviation heritage, many of these aircraft can still be seen in their natural environment rather than sitting quietly in a museum or existing only as faded photographs and fond memories. Classic Aircraft details a cross-section of the growing number of classic aircraft currently flying in this country, including some recent arrivals to this country.
