Celebrating the history of aviation in New Zealand, Classic Flyers Museum in Mount Maunganui showcases heritage aircraft, both on the ground and in the skies.
Aviation aficionados can explore aircraft hangars and display areas featuring planes ranging from miniatures and models to the full-scale nostalgia of vintage aircraft.
But more than just static exhibits, at Classic Flyers you can also take to the skies on a scenic flight in a beautifully restored heritage aircraft.
Soar over the Bay of Plenty in the open cockpit of a Boeing Stearman, a WWII biplane, or experience the thrill of a hands-on glider flight.
