DC3 Scenic Flights
Join us for our summer series of DC3 scenic flights!
Want a fabulous and unique experience, never to be forgotten?
Air Chathams and the Classic Flyers Museum in Tauranga have teamed up to provide you with a spectacular scenic flight in the 1945 Douglas DC-3, “Pouwhaitere”. Delight in an awesome 30 minute flight with old style luxury and spectacular views over the Bay of Plenty. Learn about the history of our unique aircraft and take a very special trip with our dedicated crew.
From days flown under command of the Royal New Zealand Air Force, and then as a passenger commuter for the National Airways Corporation, to fertilising crops as a top-dressing craft around New Zealand, the Douglas DC-3 is a true Kiwi at heart. Our fully restored “grand old lady” of the skies is as popular now as she ever was!
