Flight Club - Auckland Region

This week come join us while we explore the greater Auckland region. Our departure point for tonight will be Auckland (NZAA), followed by a scenic flight over South Auckland to Ardmore. We will then fly out into the Hauraki Gulf and make a stop on Great Barrier Island before finishing the evening at Waiheke. 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.
