Easter at the Paeroas, UPDATE.

Keep praying to those weather gods because so far, it seems to be working. It looks like we have reasonable weather pattern that will allow us to fly SOMEWHERE this Easter holiday!
On that happy note I'd like to mention a number of things that will help everyone have a good time.
Camping: If you are camping at the Squash club grounds what I said before still applies but also:

Easter at the Paeroas!! April 10 - 14th.

Yes, it is time once again for the annual pilgrimage to the Paeraos for another fabulous flying fest.

 

We will follow the same program as last year with a fun comp over the four days and a bbq on the Saturday night. BBQ is free for club members (BYO drinks) and $5.00 for non members. If you know any non members that want to join in ask them to see me by Friday night.

A dressing down at Duders

Flew at Duders today in a E, going SE wind. Met up with the ranger who advised me that Duders is being top-dressed in the next few weeks during week days and any pilots are advised to contact him to see if the topdressing plane will be active.

 

His contact details are : 021 676 300 - Paul Wilson.

 

Attached a couple of pix....and yes that is a low level plane flying directly underneath one of us soaring. He snapped a couple of pix through his cabin canopy as he went past !

Yes, due to a bit of inclement weather the organisers have decided to postponed the league to the reserve dates of 28-29/03/09.

Watch for a further post on Thursday 26/03 for the latest update on what will be happening for the weekend. Hopefully the weather gods will smile on us long enough to get a few tasks in......

Keep praying,

Xen.

Para-car test flown successfully, Commercial production planned.

in

A small firm in the UK have built and successfully test flown the a prototype para-car. Capable of being driven on road like a standard car (closer to a buggy really), and flown like a powered trike, the "SkyCar" is intended for eventual commercial production.

What better way to get to flying sites, and do retreives!.
