Adventure Flights

Ever dreamt of a flight in a Warbird? You can make that dream come true!

Maybe, you are looking for that extraordinary gift for someone really special!

Here’s the answer…  

Warbirds Limited, the operational division of New Zealand Warbirds, is formally certified by the New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) under the Part 115 Rules to authorise Adventure Aviation flights in Warbirds aircraft based at Ardmore.

We can also arrange flights for you with other authorised flight organisations at Ardmore to provide you with an unprecedented range of aircraft choice.

Depending on how much you’d like to invest in what, for most, is a once-in–a-lifetime experience, flights can be tailored to suit – from a high speed jet, the throaty roar of a radial or the silky smooth growl of a V12 piston-engined Warbird or, if you prefer, a sedate roam around the local countryside or over Auckland City in a pre-WW2 biplane or the nostalgic DC3! 
From scenic to full aerobatics or even in formation with other aircraft  -  the choice is yours!
Experienced, qualified commercial pilots will give you the thrill of a lifetime! You’ll receive a full safety briefing and learn how the aircraft operates.

Indicative costs range from $110 to $4000 depending on the aircraft and the type of flight you decide upon.
