White Wings Neighbourhood - Sold
Neighbourhood named after pioneering aircraft.
Like Cecil Hill, White Wings also remembers the early days of the Canterbury Flying School who were the first occupants of what later became the aerodrome.
White Wings was the name the students gave one of their first training aircraft - the 45hp, single-seat Caudron bi-plane built by flying school staff with the help of the trainees. For some weeks all the students who 'took their tickets' flew in White Wings.
After World War One, it was decided that the Caudrons were outdated and sadly it's likely that White Wings, like the other aircraft, were scrapped.
Our thanks to the Air Force Museum of New Zealand and Christchurch City Libraries for information and advice.
