Hood Aerodrome, Masterton is home to one of the world’s largest collections of flying WWI aircraft. The Vintage Aviator’s outstanding collection of original, reproduction and replica aircraft of the Great War era regularly take to the skies, recreating aerial war-time history. Come see for yourself the last weekend of every month throughout the operational season (November- April, excluding February).

Flying weekends provide a great opportunity for the public to see the collection in the air, while allowing the pilots to routinely practice operating these war machines. Because flying weekends are more casual than past TVAL air shows, we suggest bringing your own seat and refreshments along. TVAL’s replica collection, sometimes accompanied by one or two of our reproduction aircraft, represent TVAL at select air shows throughout the season.

Flying will be scheduled from 10.00am – 12.00pm and 2.00pm – 4.00pm Saturday and Sunday, with a Saturday only option of 6.00pm – 8.00pm if flying that day has been held up with weather. Guided hangar tours will also be offered on these days outside of the flying hours. All are welcome to attend. Photographers welcomed. Cash and EFTPOS are accepted.

Ticket Prices:

Adult- $20

Children (Ages 6 to 12)- $10

    hi –
    is it possible to purchase a ticket to allow a veteran to ride in the Memphis Belle?

    • Hi Donna. Sorry but we do not have a Memphis Belle in our collection. We specialize in World War One aircraft only and currently do not offer rides in our aircraft.
