  • Great spot to look at planes and the history of pilots from the area. Art gallery and shop on site also. Was disappointed I could not have a flight in a biplane, they are grounded at present. Pays to ring first to see if they are flying. Airplane Restoration off-site costs bit more is privately owned, reception needs to ring them first to see if it's okay. The entrance in get in was $12. Lovely cafe next door with homemade goodies, and a shop which you can visit too
  • Cool place to visit. I was a bit disappointed though for the fact they have advertised the Fox Moth flights and was therefore counting on a flight in this for my boys for a christmas present. There seems to be some wrangle happening between the Aviation centre and the aircraft owners or something and they canned the Fox Moth flights. A bit poor when they had brochures and advertising for it.
  • So much to see here. The photo display is most awesome
  • Wonderful place to visit great to see history preserved
  • What a gem of a place. South Island aviation history at it's absolute best. A dedicated bunch of volunteers make this an outstanding place to visit
