Remembering Martin Johnson

Sadly, we announce the passing of our friend and long time pilot, Martin Johnson - on 19 August 2014.
Martin started flying as one of my early students, way back in the early 90’s, and has been a constant flying companion and friend to a bunch of us since then.
He was a good spirited and humorous buddy to share the pleasures of flight with and always enjoyed company and a day out on the hill.
Martin was the embodiment of a careful and safe pilot, and is famous for having flown very regularly for over 20 years

Site Explorer Competition

The Site Explorer Competition has finished for another year. This year was a hard-fought battle that went right to the last few days. Don Smith emerged the victor with an impressive 12 sites, narrowly beating out Johnny Hopper and kiwisurferboy on 11.


Should the weather be nice enough for us to fly, we thought we should kick of the new season with a BBQ at the car park at Maioro. All welcome. BYO. I will leave a note on our Facebook page to let you know whether we are going ahead or not. We hope to catch up with all those who we haven't seen over winter!

Poison to be laid on Awhitu Peninsula

 Hi all,

I've received notification of possum erradication on the Awhitu Peninsula from the lighthouse down to Kario. Attached is the poor notification notice. I have asked for an electronic copy of the map to be sent or posted online for viewing.

The poison will be laid between 15 July 2014 and 15 July 2015 so keep an eye out for it from then.

Are there any sites we may have a use for some turf on the take off. Maybe the Paeroas, any others?

Auckland Airspace Review 2014

Following last nights Auckland Airspace review meeting, all looks good for our Moirs Hill GAA ‘active by request’.

This was our proposal for a new GAA to increase the allowable height above Moirs from 3500ft to 4500ft.

There was firm opposition from airways and commercial operators for ‘active by notification’.
