Fodor's Review

Starting in 1916, New Zealand pilots learned how to fly at Wigram airfield. The Air Force's old hangars plus a brand-new state-of-the-art aircraft hall now hold exhibits on aviation history, including the Royal New Zealand Air Force, flight simulators, and 30 classic aircraft. Take the behind-the-scenes guided tour to see aircraft restoration projects in action in other hangars.
