What is The Poppy Flight?

The Poppy Flight is a major fundraiser bringing together remembrance and hope for the future. It will encourage our children to remember those who fought for our freedom, many of whom who paid the ultimate price, and encourage them to think about returned servicemen who need our help and support now.

The collective fundraising will help the RSA and the Starship Foundation continue to provide the care needed in many areas. The Poppy Flight will also help keep our aviation history alive through the NZ Warbirds Association, without whom the flight would not be possible.
