Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre Exhibition


Classic Fighters Awards Dinner


As the mammoth Classic Fighters airshow draws to a close on Easter Sunday, there is always a major highlight still to look forward to: the fantastic Classic Fighters Awards Dinner.  

The organisers have prided themselves on providing delicious cuisine accompanied by Marlborough's world-class wines.

The dinner will be held in the new ‘Dangerous Skies’ WW2 exhibition at Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre, at 7pm, on Sunday 16 April 2017.

Tickets are $85 incl each for a 3 course gourmet dinner. No door sales. Tickets strictly limited to 250.

This event has evolved into one of the Southern Hemisphere's most prestigious occasions for the entire cross-section of heritage aviation, with representation from throughout the industry and from many countries. 

The awards presentation will acknowledge some of the outstanding efforts that have been witnessed in the world of historic aircraft restoration and preservation.

This will be a night to remember and one you won't want to miss.

Tickets available here for $85.
