OUR EXCLUSIVE FRATERNITY





We have seized this opportunity to record and preserve the fascinating 60 year history of Air New Zealand's FLIGHT ENGINEERS

In times past, any historical narrative about FLIGHT ENGINEERS would generally be constrained to whatever content could be published in a book. Such books may have contained a limited number of topical photographs.

Unfortunately, published books will always have somewhat limited accessibility, and regrettably they can never provide any opportunity to update with new material.

By utilising a website format, it permits us to include unlimited written text, untold numbers of photos and videos, plus handy links to a wide variety of aviation related topics.  It will also provide easy access to this information to the widest possible audience.

     SAFER AIRCRAFT = FLIGHT ENGINEERS

We are a very fortunate few who were privileged to have been able to play our part in a long and significant era in the history of New Zealand aviation.

This was that 60 year period in T.E.A.L. and Air New Zealand's history, when the invaluable safety factor of requiring the on board technical expertise and knowledge guaranteed by professional FLIGHT ENGINEERS ensured that they were a most essential and valued part of the crew complement for long-haul airliners.

We can be proud to have participated in this golden era, when Licensed FLIGHT ENGINEERS were legally required by the FAA Approved Airplane Flight Manuals, and were respected members of long-haul Flight Crews.
