Flight Club - Ardmore

This week come join us while we start to adventure into New Zealand's biggest city; Auckland. Our first stop of the night will be Matamata, followed by a scenic flight through the central North Island before landing at Pauanui. Even if you have no experience you can still join us and learn a few things or two on the way and most importantly have a fun time doing what us members enjoy most. Remember this is a social flight group and we will be departing in two groups.
