Flight Club - North Shore

This week come join us while we leave the township of Kaitaia as we head back south down the west coast past Opononi and Dargaville before heading back towards New Zealands' largest city to land at North Shore Aerodrome. 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.
