Microlighting

We had a great time in Microlights KIX and THA on Sunday.

YP8

The opportunity to take a three circuit lesson in either of THA or KIX for $20.00 kept our instructors Esther, Mads, Hamish and Tonia flat out all day. Flights in KIX  were booked back to back from 8am.

Want to do some more microlight flying?
Book another lesson. Email or phone Esther estherh@hbecac.co.nz /06  8798466.

Fly South

DSCN1368

Another Southern excursion coming up weekend 17-19 October.

Get yourselves together folks and weather permitting it is all on.
We would leave mid morning on Friday 17th – off to maybe Kaikoura or Westport- making a few stops on the way to swap pilots. The following morning will take us to the deep South with a night in Invercargill or maybe Queenstown. Then return home at our leisure on Sunday. It is always a success and this one will be no different. Check out the movies on the Club website – carried out in FQQ ( in Coastguard colours) and FTR way back in 2005. FQQ is usually a starter with JKA a worthy companion so I will tentatively book those two. The more the merrier though so, plenty more ‘planes in the hanger or bring your own.
All very relaxed and with a minimum of organisation. If the weather is nicer on one side we start there and progress to the other side as the weekend progresses. A few beers at night and a comfy motel, and on to the next place tomorrow.
