Omaka Mosquito Day: POSTPONED

Sorry this event has been postponed


  • Sat 12 Feb ’22, 10:00am – 3:00pm


Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre, 79 Aerodrome Rd, Blenheim


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • General Admission Student (13-17 years): $10.00
  • General Admission Child (0-12 years) with a paying adult: $0.00

NOTE: We are sorry to advise that due to New Zealand going to RED in the COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic light) system we are postponing the event. All tickets are refundable. Once the country goes back to ORANGE we will be in touch with a new date. Thank you and keep well!

A fabulous family day is promised at Omaka, featuring the first public engine runs of the John Smith Mosquito, supported by an array of classic cars and warbirds on display.

Every ticket holder goes into the draw* to be a 'co-pilot' while the Mosquito engines are run up. Yes, that's right, you'll get to sit in the cockpit! Sitting in a Mosquito while the engines roar is an opportunity of a lifetime and rare as a hen's teeth. You'd be crazy not to come!

In addition, joy flights will be available, great food and music, plus entry to the aviation museum is included in the ticket fee - usually $39pp. What a deal!

All money raised will go towards the ongoing upkeep of the Mosquito.

*Conditions apply. Please note entry is subject to the presentation of a valid NZ Vaccine Pass (12 years plus), and all attendees must sign in with the official NZ Covid App or by using the ballot provided.
