Syndicates - NZ Warbirds

Syndicates

Whilst NZ Warbirds is the parent organisation, most Warbird aircraft are owned and operated by individual syndicates with new syndicates being formed regularly as aircraft become available, often still in flying condition or as part of a restoration project.  So if you are interested in aircraft ownership, syndication could be for you!

You don’t have to be a pilot to own a share and ride in a Warbirds aircraft. Syndicate members are associated with one specific aircraft, ownership of the asset and decision making resides with the members of the syndicate. There is no restriction to the number syndicates a Warbirds member may join and some belong to several.

To join a syndicate contact the syndicate directly. They will explain their experience requirements, application to join procedure and financial arrangements.

Most syndicates include Flight Instructors who conduct type ratings, BFRs and aerobatic renewals as required.

  • What a birthday gift from my family. A stunning flight and my wife said my smile after climbing (clambering) out of the cockpit was to be seen. Gary my pilot was totally professional and made it all so enjoyable.

  • Wow, thats an amzing day full of discovery and nature. Loved the cruise! You guys rock.

  • Lovely cafe with a great view of all the planes taking off. The museum guides are super friendly and my son absolutely loves coming here. Highly recommended.

  • Fantastic opportunity to get up close to some of the icons of New Zealand’s aviation history - with the majority being flyable examples. Knowable guides to fill in any gaps in your own knowledge. Topped off by an amazing scale model collection.

    MarkR986 October 2020

  • Interesting guided visit around the War Birds Facility, get up close to the war planes. Beautiful display. Would suggest combine with a visit to the Auckland Botanical Gardens. A Great Auckland Day Out.

  • On the Ardmore Airport (the busiest airport in the southern hemisphere) are two hangers of war planes. I have lived nearby for years and the planes often fly over my house but I have never before visited the exhibition. They have a Spitfire, a P45 Mustang, a Skyhawk and many many more aircraft. Almost all of them still fly. I was fascinated by the pre-WWII planes. The beauty of the engineering is fascinating and there are not many places you can get so close to the planes. You can also pay to have a flight in many of he planes. That is something I am planning for later in the year. The staff were all very helpful and knowledgeable. I will be taking all my visitors there in future.
