Meetings, parties, fly-ins, working bees, etc


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. www.facebook.com/wingswaves We hope to catch up with all those who we haven't seen over winter!

Here's a really nice clip from the PWC Superfinal to get you in the mood (full credit to Brett Hazlett for a fantastic video).

Traversing the Southern Alps by paraglider - an evening with Tom de Dorlodot and Ferdinand Van Schelven


On Sunday 10 March we are very fortunate to have two top X-Alps athletes, Tom de Dorlodot and Ferdinand Van Schelven, give us a presentation on their recent 800km traverse of the Southern Alps from Te Anau to Nelson, which they undertook as part of their training for X-Alps 2013.

Tom will also be showing a documentary on his 2012 expedition to the Karakoram mountains in Pakistan, where he pioneered a 300km route through some of the most challenging alpine terrain on the planet.

Entry is free and friends are more than welcome to attend.

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.
