    Flying Radio Controlled Aircraft

    One of the focuses of True Aviators has always been to encourage participation in all disciplines of aviation.

    Having arrived in NZ recently to continue work with the DC 3 project, Adam has had the opportunity to pass on his love of flying model aircraft - and we thought it`d be nice to showcase a little of the fun.

    George is the Manager of Te Anau Lodge, and has had a life long dream to master the art of flying radio controlled aircraft. As the Lodge and the DC 3 are connected by a common ownership, Adam has spent many hours at the Lodge finalising aspects of the DC 3 progression.

    After hours George has been practicing tirelessly to understand this exciting new sport. His appreciation for the support and guidance of an instructor has been encouraging, as we feel that it`s a reasonably challenging skill set to learn.

    It has given us reason to consider developing a program to encourage participation, and suggest that you "watch this space" to see our thoughts in the near future!!

    True Aviators assist with DC 3 project in New Zealand

    While our core business may appear to revolve around flights in the Russian Bare, we celebrate our dedication to ensure aviation benefits across the board from the experiences we`ve had.

    Recently we have been approached by an enthusiastic individual to assist with a DC 3 project in New Zealand, and have sent Adam over as consultant to help navigate the process of bringing an aircraft into a commercial role, with the anticipation of providing stunning flight seeing tours in the lower South Island of New Zealand.

    While this is a very new project, we thought you may like to see some photos of the aircraft, and the scenery you could expect to see during a flight in this classic beauty.

    We`ll be sure to update progress, and let you know how you can be involved in time.

    True Aviators Visit the 2012 Jamestown Airshow!!

    On Sunday the 14th of October the team from True Aviators visited the magnificent airshow at Jamestown - an event that only occurs every 4 years.

    We were treated to impressive displays by many rare and unique WW2 aircraft, Vintage Biplanes, modern day utility aircraft, jets, and many ground based displays.

    We were really impressed with the support of all those attending, and appreciate beyond words the attention True Aviators received. Thank you kindly to all those who chose to take home our merchandise, and those who flew with us in the Russian Bare at the completion of the airshow.

    We`ll be back in 4 years, and urge you all to pencil this event in as a true overview of aviation as we enjoy it - and guarantee that you`ll come away inspired beyond belief!!

    A big thank you to the organisers of the show, the sponsors, pilots and crews responsible for displaying and preparing aircraft - and to all those that came along, paid the entry fee and supported Vintage, classic and warbird aviation. Your input is invaluable, and very much appreciated.

    Russian Bare visits Woodside for a special outing!!

    True Aviators and the Russian Bare visits the Woodside Airfield in style on the 18th of August!!

    It is always our intention to provide high class experiences, and this day was no exception!! Passengers arrived at Yangoora Estate`s lovely cellar door, received a briefing, and were introduced to a magnificently restored 1954 Dodge. After climbing aboard with 3 friends the lucky passenger was driven to Woodside Airstrip in style where the Russian Bare awaited their arrival.

    All passengers were individually treated to a 20 minutes aerobatic adventure flight over the Adelaide Hills region, which included a fly by of Yangoora where their other friends were watching. We found that 20 minutes was a good length of time to view the amazing scenery, enjoy personally tailored aerobatics and experience the wonder of flight in a classic warbird aircraft.

    Upon return to Yangoora Estate all passengers, families and friends were served with delicious complimentary wood fired pizzas and Yangoora`s finest wines.

    We`re really excited to have received so much lovely feedback, and look forward to hosting similar events in the future!! Thank you to all who made this a really special day!!
