Ardmore Airport was established in 1943 at the request of the US Airforce as an operational base during WWII. Although construction was not completed until 1945, the Airport served as an important base for training New Zealand pilots for action in the Pacific, and as a training centre for returning servicemen, as part of the demobilization effort after the war.
This will be a spectacular base for the Easter Rally, with its military history, current aircraft restoration work and displays. It is also convenient for those arriving from the south, as they will not have to travel through Auckland.
Save the date for another great club event!
