Posted 12 years, 11 months ago    0 comments

Happy New Year everyone, if you're planning your holidays over the next few weeks don't forget to include flying at Raglan.

Piako Gliding Club is flying from Raglan Airfield from midday Saturday 10th to midday Sunday 18th of January. Views of the coast, Mt Karioi, and Raglan township are simply stunning.

What to bring

  • Sunglasses
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Cash or cheque book, we should have mobile EFTPOS too.
  • Water/Drink
Be prepared to wait around a little if it's busy.
  • $60 for a short circuit - 5-7 mins
  • $100 10-20 mins
  • $150 20-30 mins
  • $250 30-60 mins (only available if it's not busy)
Note times are very approximate, and depend on weather conditions.

For club members there is normal club flying, with both twins over and two instructors each day. Please check the roster to see if you're rostered on as an instructor, tow or duty pilot. If you can't make it you'll need to organise a replacement.

Bookings aren't necessary while we're at Raglan - feel free to just turn up. Tows are available for anyone.

We'll also bring one, two or three of the singles over depending on demand, if you're keen to help with this, or would like to fly a single at Raglan, get in touch with Tim. It's great experience flying from a different airfield so be sure to make the most of it.

We look forward to seeing everyone out there, don't forget your togs.
