About Fighter Flights
Fighter Flights also supports as many airshows as possible during the summer months and there is ride availability at these shows usually on the post show Monday. To date the Fighter Flights Yak has appeared at the Warbirds over Wanaka Easter Air Show (every even year), the Omaka based Classic Fighters Easter Air Show (every odd year), the Tauranga Classics Air Show and the Wings over Wairarapa Air Show.
We also support the NZ Warbirds Open days at Ardmore Auckland and the regular flying days at Omaka Airfield that are organised as fund raisers for the Avaition Heritage Center.

In 1995 Graeme started an Air Line career where he is currently flying as an Airbus A320 Training Captain.
Graeme has always had a passion for Warbird aircraft and owned a Nanchang CJ-6 for a number of years before purchasing the Yak as a project in 2004. Flying and displaying the Yak 3 is a hard earned dream come true for Graeme and he loves being able to demonstrate the power, performance and grace to his passengers on what is a once in a lifetime experience.
Ryan has always had a hankering to fly the higher performance fighters such as the Mustang and Spitfire and jumped at the offer to fly the Fighter Flights Yak 3-the Russian Spitfire.
Currently experienced in flying over 60 different types of aircraft, a large portion of which are vintage or warbird, Ryan brings a wealth of experience ranging from WWI single engine aircraft through to WWII twin engine bombers. Ryan will introduce you to the power and agility of this amazing aircraft so widely praised by ‘friend’ and feared by ‘foe’.
