Promoting volunteer activities for active retirees.
Classic Flyers in association with Metlifecare announce our "Lets Get Out There" volunteer activity program

Classic Flyers NZ is an exciting local Aircraft Museum combining static displays along with operational aircraft in a unique hospitality environment.
Maintaining and displaying this collection to the public along with running all facets of our facility requires support and daily assistance.
This is constantly performed by an outstanding group of passionate local people who are willing to contribute some of their time.

In return - Classic Flyers' volunteers, create many worthwhile results in our community while also gaining a real sense of personal satisfaction as they grow to be part of our team.

Tauranga has a growing population of active retirees who would like to keep "Out There". We have a volunteer program that is a rewarding way to achieve this.

Working with the management at Metlifecare's Papamoa Beach Village we have jointly developed a volunteer activity program for their residents called "Lets Get Out There!"


A group of passionate individuals got together to achieve this dream of creating Classic Flyers to protect the rich and precious history of New Zealand aviation.
