Our goal is to collect and preserve the digital aviation history of the Hawke's Bay district.Come and meet us at the Napier Aero Club on Fridays around 2pm.
Whilst many of us have a connection to aviation it's not necessary to join. If you look up when you hear an aircraft fly over, you are our sort of person. The rich history and heritage of aviation in the district will quickly grab your imagination! We are particularly interested if you can:
We are in receipt of lots of material from the public. We are continually sorting and
categorising this material.
As material is sorted research oportunities arise. This research has lead to the many
stories we have published here and elsewhere.
Service personnel, RNZAF, RAAF, RAF, Fleet Air Arm and US Airforce (trained) pilots and aircrew,
ground crew, administration guys and gals, Aero Club trained pilots and the topdressing folk.
Yep, every organisation needs keen people to keep it going.
