Classic Flyers NZ gets Skyhawk.
Exciting news! The Government has met with Classic Flyers NZ (BOP Classic Aircraft Trust) and offered the Trust the permanent loan of a Skyhawk aircraft.
The Trust charitable objective is to retain and promote the aviation heritage of New Zealand and the opportunity to preserve the Skyhawk for posterity is one of the most important projects in which the Trust has been involved.
The RNZAF will dismantle the aircraft, transport it and reassemble on site in Tauranga. The cost to the Trust is $30,000.
This sum is beyond the normal resources to fund. The Trust Management believes Classic Flyers belongs to the wider community of the Bay of Plenty and thus are going to offer ‘shares’ in the Tauranga Skyhawk to the whole BOP and aviation communities.
For a minimum $60 sponsorship of the transport costs you will receive:
- A Tauranga Skyhawk Share Certificate and personalized photograph.
- Associate Membership of Classic Flyers for one year.
- Museum access – free.
- AVGAS Café and Bar discounts
- Emailed newsletters
- The knowledge that you have assisted in preserving and displaying an iconic part of New Zealand’s aviation heritage.
