Know someone who would love to experience the pure, exhilarating joy of flying in an open cockpit aircraft?  Give them the gift of flight or treat yourself to one of our much loved Tiger Moth Joy Ride flights out of Hood Aerodrome in Masterton, Wairarapa.

We offer joy rides on the first and third Saturday of each month, with the Sunday reserved for a weather day.

We offer these flights to keep the memory and love of vintage aviation alive and, at the same time, these flights allow Wairarapa Flying Tigers to maintain cash flow and carry out our society's mission.

  • 20 Minutes - $295

  • 30 Minutes - $395

  • 40 Minutes - $495

  • 60 Minutes - $595

If you have something extra special in mind, we can work with you to develop a unique experience.

Wairarapa Flying Tigers operate CAANZ Part 115 pleasure flights, under the New Zealand Warbirds certificate.  Last year we conducted approximately 100 flights through spring, summer and early autumn.  Mostly commercial flights, but several flights supported charitable causes, air show displays and commemorative fly-pasts.  Our pilots all have commercial licenses; most are rated for formation and aerobatic flights as well as the scenic (air experience) flights.
