Flight Club - Kaipara Flats

This week come join us while we leave the beautiful coastal town of Raglan as we head north through Auckland City over the famous sky tower. Finally we will be landing at Kaipara Flats as you navigate the hilly terrian. 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. 

During this flight we will be leaving Raglan and heading roughly nouth along the west coast past port Waikato, then heading on to Ardmore. At Ardmore we will be following state highway 1 through Auckland City, were we will attempt a group screenshot overhead the skytower. Next we will preform a touch and go at North Shore before arriving at Kaipara Flats
