DC3 rides

by bryah Online Now Feb 27, 2008 at 5:42 PM

Hey there,
Does anyone know if they are going to do flights in the dc3 plane for the public, if so how much does it cost and can you pre-book or do you just do it on the day? I went to the Warbirds over Wanaka a few years ago now but we paid to do a short senic flight over lake Wanaka and I would like to do it again this year.
email at holysmokes_2121@hotmail.com if you know!
Cheers,
Bryah

    Checked with my husband who knows a lot about such stuff. He was surprised not to find the DC3 flights on http://www.pionair.co.nz/ anymore.

    There are DC3 flights over Auckland and to Great Barrier Island. Check on:

    Perhaps somebody else knows more.

    Have you seen this website:

    http://www.flydakota.co.nz/

    They even do 10 day tours on a DC 3 from Auckland (Ardmore Airport).

    Just checked a Sunday ride. For an adult this costs NZ$ 80.

    Flights at Wanaka vary from year to year, depending on the available planes and waether conditions. As far as I know advance bookings aren't possible, you book on the day, at the airfield. I don't recall there being any DC3 flights in recent years, just the Catalina and, a couple of shows back and very expensive, one of the warbirds.
