Croydon Aviation Heritage Centre

The Croydon Aviation Heritage Centre houses mostly aircraft from the 1920s and 30s, including the largest collection of de Havilland aircraft in the southern hemisphere.

It is unique in that nearly all of the aircraft on display actually fly.

This nationally significant museum is dedicated to preserving and celebrating New Zealand’s civil aviation heritage – both the stories of pioneer aviators and their equally colourful machines.

Many of the aircraft on display have been restored and are maintained by the Mandeville-based Croydon Aircraft Company.
