Flight Club - Hastings

This week come join us while we leave Rotorua, heading south bound towards Hastings. Our first stop of the night will be Taupo, followed by a scenic flight over the Kaweka forest park towards Wairoa. Finally depart heading towards Hastings. 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. 

Flight Time

approximately - 1.5hrs


  • Depart Rotorua (NZRO) following State highway 5 towards Taupo.
  • Preform a touch and go at Taupo (NZAP) before heading southbound. 
  • Fly overhead the Kaweka Forest track towards Wairo (NZWO).
  • Preform a full stop landing at Wairo (NZWO).
  • Track the Hawke's Bay coast line around towards Hastings (NZHS) to finish the night with a full stop landing.
