Royal seal for heritage aircraft restoration skills in Top of the South, New Zealand.
The visit to Omaka Heritage Centre in Blenheim by the most well know royal aviator, Prince William, is a high accolade indeed for the Aviation Museum team and the skills in aviation restoration that are available in the Top of the South. The Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre presents the story of aviation featuring Sir Peter Jackson’s collection of WW1 aircraft and artefacts which are brought to life in sensational sets created by the internationally acclaimed talent of WingNut Films and Weta Workshop. The stunning theatrical treatment of the displays is sure to enthral the royal couple with scenes recreating incidents that actually happened in the war.
The Royal couple will also be entertained by a selection of vintage aircraft which will be flying over Omaka during the course of their visit. These will include a Boeing Stearman and an Avro Anson believed to be the only one flying in the world today.
The Top of the South Aviation Cluster is recognised internationally for the availability of aviation services and service training options available.
