Ashburton has a strong aviation history, being a training base in World War 2. There were 50 Tiger Moths based there. The original tarmac and tie-down rings are still there to this day. These helped to secure the planes from Mid Canterbury’s strong nor-west winds.

The Ashburton Aviation Museum is well worth a visit.
