The Poppy Flight

Bringing together remembrance and hope for the future. In the run up to ANZAC Day 2020, a large poppy and a star will be flown around NZ to collect funds for the RSA, Starship Foundation and NZ Warbirds. They will stop in various towns raising awareness of the journey and encouraging participation from local communities and schools. We are currently looking for volunteer pilots to fly sectors between these towns. Can you help with this? Hover above the arrows to see flight details.
