This week come join the Flight Club group as we leave New Zealand for the first time and adventure into the Pacific. For our journey today we will depart from Pago Pago International Airport (NSTU) in American Samoa and fly across the date line to Faleolo in Samo but there will be plenty of stop along the way so pack some dinner. Everyone young or old, beginner or expert is welcome to come and join in. Remember this is a social group flight and we will be departing after a pre-flight discussion.
Please note this event will be longer than the normal flight club events and people are welcome to join and leave at different stages in the evening. Some airports may also not be in default scenery; I have tried to include every airport in the region so that people with pay ware scenery get the full experience.
