Flight Club - Whangarei

This week come join us while we start to adventure to the top of New Zealand. Our first stop of the night will be Kerikeri, followed by a scenic flight through the Bay of Islands before landing at Kaikohe and finishing at Whangarei. 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 if there is a large number of aircraft.
