Our fascinating journeys are a MUST for those passionate about aviation!

We are aviation enthusiasts ourselves, and what we enjoy most is sharing our passion with you which is why we are now in our 11th year of aviation tours. 

Our unique itineraries include plenty of museums, private collections and restoration facilities to delight aviation enthusiasts, combined with interesting leisure time and some alternatives for those who would rather see more local sights. Our many repeat guests are a testament to the quality and comfort of our tours and many friendships have come from travelling together.  

Why choose an escorted group tour? You can relax knowing that everything is organized for you, and there is nothing better than reflecting on your day with a group of likeminded people, sharing your stories and experiences like moment you were moved to tears by the sound of 12 Spitfires taking off, the personal accounts of those who gave their lives for us or the world class facilities at home in NZ.

Share in our excitement as we take you to some of the most amazing air shows & events. 

We’d love you to join us so call now on 07 578 8759 or 021 076 8308, or email melanie(at) for more info or see the links below.

Make 2021 the year you do what you've always wanted to, with our help.
