Yealands Classic Fighters 2021
Omaka Aerodrome, Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand
2nd to 4th of April 2021
BRAND NEW WEBSITE!
We're delighted to be launching with this newsletter, our new website, freshly minted and ready for your enjoyment and reference.
This great new portal into the Yealands Classic Fighters Airshow includes some clips from the fantastic video footage captured at the time of the 2019 airshow on a gyro-camera fitted to a Squirrel helicopter. This was filmed by Peter Thompson, directed and edited by James Orphan and flown by helicopter operator Toby Reid. If you'd like to see a larger edited section of the production, you can view it here.....
You'll note that most of the aircraft captured here are also Omaka based and typical of what you might see during a visit to this heritage aviation 'mecca'.
SUPER EARLY BIRD TICKET SALES!
So here's the deal you've been waiting for! To kick off the 2021 campaign in style, we're offering a limited number of 'Super-Early-Bird' Gold-Pass tickets for our 20th anniversary airshow. This deal will be available until 31st January so don't muck about. Get yours now while they last. The number of Gold Pass seats is of course limited by the size of the grandstand, so offering a $50 discount for this early ticket purchase is not something we do lightly. We know that many people will already be planning to travel, many as couples, so that's a $100 saving on something you knew you were going to be buying anyway so it's definitely worth doing. Here's the link you want....
And while you're at it, we suggest booking your accommodation. There are some suggestions here.... www.marlboroughnz.com
And since you're planning this far out, why not make a proper holiday out of it and take the time to go for a cruise on the Marlborough Sounds, visit some wineries like the world-renowned Yealands Estate which as a pioneer in creative eco-friendly wine production, is a tourist attraction in its own right. See here..www.yealands.co.nz/our-place/come-visit
And then there are cycle tours, numerous museums (including the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre which is why we run the Classic Fighters Airshow), spectacular world-listed nature walks, growers of quality produce, brewers of boutique beer, arts and crafts. You really could spend a lot of time exploring this wonderfully attractive part of New Zealand.
NEW TICKETING PROGRAMME
We're pleased to be announcing our new relationship with the Eventbrite organisation to take our ticketing processes to a new level of management that will help streamline processing at the gate over the airshow weekend, as well as providing comprehensive service and increased options for advanced ticket purchases on line. This organisation has been working with the Classic Fighters team over the past few months to fine tune the ticketing product that we think will best suit our airshow audience.
