Flying NZ Cook Area Regional Comps


Congratulations to our team on a great effort at our FlyingNZ regional rally over the weekend and a big thank you to everyone who helped make the event such a success.
Our team will be off to Whitianga in late February for the National Competition with competitors in 14 events.
We had a lot of comments from visitors and FlyingNZ about the great hospitality and atmosphere over the weekend. So job well done.

Saturday 22nd – competition day was quite an event with competitors deftly handling the wayward wind. Competing were teams from Kapiti, Wanganui and our own Hawkes Bay, taking part in circuit comps, forced landing, bombing, life raft dropping, formation flying, low flying and navigation exercises. Many thanks to the regional clubs for attending. An enjoyable social and competitive event. See the competitions page (under Gallery) for more pics and detailed competition results.

Don’t forget – this coming Sunday 30th November is CLUB DAY! A fly away to Taupo. Briefing at 10am.After the flying enjoy the family BBQ from 4pm at the club.
