At Aviation Tours NZ we are passionate about aviation and sharing it with others. In particular aviation history, which inevitably includes war history. The Poppy Flight will help the NZ Warbird Association ensure that New Zealand aviation history is preserved.
In our travels we see a lot of loss and sadness and always remember those who fought for us. The idea for the Poppy Flight has been discussed for a few years now, enthusiasm has grown but lack of time has prevented us from moving forward. This year, however, we are determined that it will happen. We want to remember and support those who put themselves in harms way for our freedom, and the families of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. We want to support those who continue to risk their lives now. We also want to look ahead to the future they have secured for us and ensure that we give our children the best chance to enjoy it. Some children and their families are facing challenges we cannot imagine.
We are working for them. By supporting the Poppy Flight you are giving your time and money to the organisations who make it their mission to provide the best care and support they can, for the past and the future. The RSA and Starship hospital
With The Poppy Flight project, we are bringing together remembrance and hope for the future.
And, keeping aviation history alive.
