A huge thank you to all of you who are volunteering at the 15th Warbirds Over Wanaka Airshow  - we couldn't do it without you! 

We are still recruiting volunteers so please spread the word & come join the volunteers team

Registrations are now open for returning and new volunteers, please read this information first.

Volunteers are our eyes and ears around the airshow and we are grateful to all of you for helping us deliver the 2016 Airshow. We normally have between 300 and 400 volunteers, depending on the programme we put together. 

You will meet new people, see some extraordinary flying displays and will have served a very worthy cause. The Warbirds Over Wanaka Community Trust aims 'To educate through the celebration and promotion of aviation past and present' and put funds back into the local region. Your enthusiasm, energy and willingness to help goes a long way to ensuring our patrons have an outstanding airshow.

We prefer to have you volunteer for all three days and anyone coming for three days will receive a WOW uniform and lunches along with your Airshow pass.

The volunteer process is:

  • Register on the form below
  • We will come back to you within several weeks to discuss your skills and where you would like to work
  • You will be confirmed as a volunteer
  • In the last few weeks leading up to the Airshow you will receive induction and training
  • You work at the Airshow
  • You give us feedback
  • We thank you!

Please register here to fill in the volunteer form.
