IMPORTANT - Fort Takapuna and North Head sites under threat!


The Department of Conservation have recently released their draft Auckland Conservation Management Strategy (CMS) for consultation. This document sets forward the policies that DOC will use to administer the areas of land that they are responsible for in Auckland over the next 10 years, which includes popular flying sites at Moirs Hill, Fort Takapuna and North Head.

Airspace files updated


A new set of airspace files have been published on the Airspace Downloads page. These have been updated to the latest version of the CAA Airspace Navigation Register (15th Nov 2012).

In this release new formats have been added. In addition to FA5 and KML we now have OpenAir and GPX formats, so the files can be loaded into much broader range of devices.

Also, in addition to CTA, GAA and MBZ the files now include CTRs.

Before using, please take note of the disclaimer on the Airspace Project page. If you discover any issues with these files please add a comment here so that it can be resolved.

Cloudbase Google+ Community


The Club's Twitter feed is having some reliability issues so I've been looking for an alternative that will work better. Luckily Google have just released Google+ Communities which is just the right fit for our needs. So I have created a Community called Cloudbase Flying

This community is for all Paraglider and Hang Glider pilots in the Auckland region to plan flying trips. Let everyone know which sites you think will be working, organise car pooling and give a report when you get to the site. You can post your comments and recieve notifications via the web, email, smartphone or txt. Get in to the Google account settings to change your notification settings to make it work the way you need.

I will keep the current Twitter service running for a little while, but if the new community works OK I will eventually shut down the Twitter feed.

Spread the word because the more users we have the better it will work.

The Site Explorer Winners are...drum roll... Tony Seaman and Jeff Rippley.

They ended up equal on 12 sites flown. As is our tradition, they are the lucky recipients of a fantastic IOU.


The Site Explorer competition has been restarted and is now accepting flights for this season from Septmber onwards. 

WOF at Vauxhall School, Devo

Just to confirm: WOFs tomorrow, Tuesday 30 October, from 4pm, are at Vauxhall school in Devonport. Morrison Ave, near Narrow Neck and Fort Takapuna, off Vauxhall Road. We are using the new school hall should the weather not play ball. 

Afterwards, the Club is putting on a sausage sizzle, so that we can all catch up after far too little flying recently. BYO drinks.
