Flight Club - Rotorua

This week come join us while we leave Pauanui Beach, heading south towards the volcanic area of Rotorua. Our first stop of the night will be Waihi Beach, followed by a sencic flight out to Mayor Island before tracking towards Rotorua. 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.
