Come experience the Kāpiti Coast Airport and meet the Air Chathams team and see their Saab 340 and the 20+ planes on display. Saturday the 5th of August from 10am to 3pm.
On the 5th of August the Kāpiti Coast Airport is hosting an open day from 10am to 3pm to introduce the Air Chathams team, ahead of their first direct Kāpiti to Auckland flight on the 20th of August. Alongside the air crew and their Saab 340 there will be over 20 aircrafts lined up on the tarmac for static display including a Catalina (an amphibious aircraft), L-39 Albatross Jet, Harvard, Tiger Moth, Sounds Air’s Pilatus PC12 and Cessna Caravan, helicopters and a mix of various other light aeroplanes.
Alongside this awesome display, Kapiti Heliworx will be taking scenic flight tours over Kāpiti and depending on weather will offer a special 12-minute Transmission Gully flight or a 10-minute Coastal flight.
Air Chathams and Kapiti Heliworx are taking pre-bookings for these scenic flights and Air Chathams’ 20 minute historic DC3 aircraft flights have booked up quickly with several flights already full.
The airline is advising people who don’t want to miss out, to book ahead online by going to Chathams’ website www.airchathams.co.nz or calling 0800 580 127.
