Flight Club - Kaitaia

This week come join us while we leave the township of Whangarei as we head north up the east coast past Kaikohe before circling the tip of the North Island before heading back down 90 mile beach towards Kaitaia. 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 a social flight group and we will be departing in two groups.
