Owned And Operated By New Zealanders With A Love Of Flying

The DC3 is owned by a group of New Zealand commercial pilots and crew, corporates, small business owners and everyday family folk. The aircraft is operated by Fly DC3 New Zealand, an incorporated, non-profit organisation devoted to the preservation and operation of DC3/C47 aircraft. All our crew and staff elect to be unpaid and any income we generate is returned back in to the maintenance and operation of the aircraft. We purely enjoy flying while our passengers sit back and soak up the charm and style of this classic airliner.
