They are as safe as we can make them.  They were all refurbished before being put into operation at Benalla, and they are maintained in accordance with Civil Aviation Safety Authority and Australian Warbirds Association Limited requirements.  The Moth 'Minor' was totally rebuilt over a six year period incorporating as many modern materials as possible, and is considered 'better than new'.

Your pilot will have carefully inspected the aircraft prior to start, and a thorough engine and systems check will be carried out just before takeoff.

Annually, each aircraft is withdrawn from service and undergoes a meticulous inspection and check over a period of several days by Licenced Aircraft Maintenance Engineers.  The Moth 'Minor' and the Nanchang are maintained by Border Aerospace Fabrication at Wangaratta Airport.
