Full Description

Episode 3 The Modern Pioneers Covers the years since World War Two. From the aftermath of this war came the aircraft and air crews who were to form the backbone of NAC - our first National Airways Corporation. Internationally, the romantic era of the flying boats gave place to the modern jet age, served by greatly improved airports. In a more individual way, the immediate post-war years saw the birth of agricultural aviation and aerial topdressing, in which New Zealand is a world leader; and some further remarkable personalities were involved in the growth of tourist flying. Today, modern pioneers like Sam Water with his powered glider and numerous private enthusiasts carry on the resourceful and innovative spirit which has always typified the story of flight in New Zealand.
