2012 NZHGPA AGM & EEM – The Queenstown Causality

Hello Auckland Members


The new 2012/13 NZHGPA Executive

PG Instructor and Tandem Seminar 28. September

We are running a PG instructor and tandem seminar on Friday, 28 September, at our place in Bayswater. 26 Beresford Street.

Apparently, there are all new CAA requirements for instructor ratings, a new form and a new process to obtain such rating. Still, there is nothing on the NZHGPA website or the current forms as per today. Hence, we will run a low key seminar just to avoid any more confusing. To catch up with the experienced instructors once in a while to discuss what's new around the world is fund and makes sense to us either way.

Canadian Champs 2012 Task 5


Kris: "Just finished final day at Canadian PG competition. Had a four hour 15 min flight! Matty Senior and Evan Lamberton both in goal. Final day of the Canadian PG comp. Another "cats cradle" task, with a lot of pilots going down at the second turn point. Prize giving dinner kicked off at about 9pm and the winners of the comp announced at 11:30pm. "Pemberton Time" ruled until the end!! Denis Cortella won with Matt Senior coming second, Evan Lamberton came 6th.

Final Results

Duders site news

HG pilots have 4WD access to the Duder north-facing takeoff site again. I have made contact with Paul, the site ranger at the Duder ARC Park. He is sympathetic to HG and is very helpful. His mobile phone number is 021-676-300. The land-line to the office is 536 6007. I find his mobile phone is a better way to reach him. Paul mentioned that hang gliding is one of the approved activities listed in the records pertaining to the use of the Duder park. Paul is on our side, so let’s make sure we can keep him there.

Canadian Champs 2012 Task 4


Kris: "Five Kiwis in goal for task 4! Matty Senior (3rd), Evan Lamberton (4th), Robbo, Robinson (22nd), Xen Zambas (26th) and Nick Stead (29th). Was a VERY slow start with a 3:15pm start for an elapsed time race with few thermals and lots of haze from forest fires, but the day improved into the evening. Land-by time was 7:30pm, and Rodger Kerr had to spiral down at that time!"

Canadian Champs 2012 Task 3


After two days of no competition flying they are back into it.

Kris: "Matty Senior first in Task 3 and Evan third. (Issues with AirScore for Evan's flight for NZ comp - needs to be "fixed"). Was a great day's flying, which everyone enjoyed. Today (Friday) is looking good too, but a bit of smoke around that may slow things down a bit."

Current Results

Canadian Champs 2012 Task 2


Kris: Task two of the Canadian Nats. A slightly earlier start at 1:45 because of the risk of thunderstorms.... Evan and Matty in goal, with Nick and Robbo "just short"... Task results to follow.
