Contributing over $7 million to the regional economy, showcasing the beauty, hospitality and opportunity that Wairarapa has to offer, Wings over Wairarapa is an iconic national event with a long history.

“Exciting times lie ahead for the festival. We have plans for an already fantastic event to become New Zealand's premier aviation event,” said Ron Mark, Chairman of Trust. “Now is the time to develop a successful STEAM aviation and educational program, diversify and develop new aviation and space technologies,” he said.

Given the extensive disruptions in recent years, the Trust would like to give special recognition and thanks to the aviation community, event attendees and vendors for their continued commitment to the event. The team is excited to plan for 2023 and looks forward to working with the airshow community to create an event the region can be proud of, showcase aviation and inspire future generations.
