A fully restored classic 1945 DC-3 available for point-to-point charter flights providing an amazing experience. The one and only Douglas DC-3 offers charter groups an amazing experience in a meticulously well-maintained warbird.

On occasion we allow the use of our classic Douglas DC3 ZK-AWP aircraft for charters.  The DC3 is available for both scenic flights and point to point charter flights providing an amazing experience.
