Flight Club - Hamilton

This week come join us while we explore the area around Hamilton. Our departure point for tonight will be NZHN, followed by a scenic flight over to Raglan before heading up the coast. We will then head to Mercer and finally to Matamata. To finish the evening we will fly back to Hamilton. 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.
