Food and drinks at Wings & Waves THIS Saturday!

Like every year, we invite all club members and their friends (even hangies) for some infamous Chili con Carne made by Reuben, some music and a catch up at our loft in Bayswater. We would love to see you all there, especially we since the annual social event at the Paeroas on Easter did not happen and due to not much flyable weather, we feel we have not seen much of each other. Time to catch up!

Please come by on Saturday, 11th June, from 6pm at the our loft in Bayswater! BYO drinks, we will make food.

Software to re-fly your great flights using your GPS Track Log and Google Earth.


Just had a go running multiple tracks, Adam, Evan and Jeffs flight from Moirs to Langs Beach.

Great fun. Watching them climb out from Moirs, then Jeff and Evan shooting off with Adam chasing. Then later when Evan stays inland while Jeff goes toward the coast and gets lucky and Evan fizzles out.

Going to try some of the tracks from Wanaka. The last task looks interesting.

Banff Mountain Film Festival 2011 comes to Auckland


Now that the wintry weather is making its presence felt and thwarting our ability to get out and go flying, it's a great time of year to kick back and live vicariously through other outdoor adventurers' triumphs (or near-fatal errors as the case may be).

The Banff Mountain Film Festival makes its way back to Auckland for 2011 with a massive line-up of adventure sports films from around the world, this year spread over two nights at SkyCity Theatre (Tuesday May 24 and Wednesday June 1).

I guess it had to happen sooner or later. Due to the poor weather forecast for the Easter weekend,  the Auckland club get together and BBQ, and the regional comp have been cancelled.

The weather at the moment looks flyable on Friday and even maybe Saturday so if you still want to go you can still go and camp at the Squash club, but please follow the instructions given on the previous post.

!!! EASTER AT THE PAEROAS !!! APRIL 22nd - 25th

Yes, it's Easter at the Paeroas time again!

As we were so lucky with the weather last year it would be downright criminal not to give it another go this year.

The nice guys at the Waikiti Squash club have given us permission to use their grounds for overflow camping and parking. This is only possible because it is agreed with the Waikiti Thermal Pools next door that any parking/camping in the Squash club grounds pay the daily pool fee.
