Museum of Transport & Technology Aviation

The multi-award-winning Aviation Display Hall at the Museum of Transport and Technology hosts a large collection of recreational, military, topdressing, and commercial aircraft which celebrates the evolution of New Zealand aviation since February 1911 when Vivian Walsh achieved sustained and controlled flight in a British Howard Wright biplane.

You will also see aircraft which saw service with the Royal New Zealand Air Force such as the de Havilland Mosquito and the modern Skyhawk and Aermacchi. Other highlights include the Solent and Sunderland Flying Boats and the Lancaster bomber.
