Based at Rangiora, New Zealand, our club is a strong and growing group of people who fly and talk about recreational aircraft.

We have very modern facilities for use by our club members including a large hangar in which members can house aircraft, and another hangar under construction. Rangiora Airfield which is possibly the fastest growing aviation site in New Zealand.

The club owns two aircraft, Rans S6 ZK-JOR, and Tecnam P92 Echo ZK-RGA. The club has sold its older RANS S6, ZK-JOL. We also have access through members to training in other 3-axis and weight-shift aircraft.

To fly our aircraft you will need a Microlight Pilot Certificate (or a PPL/RPL as long as you belong to the RNZAC), to get started you can contact one of our instructors who will not only teach you to fly, but also help you with the minimal paperwork.

Every couple of months we send a newsletter out to our members, we have them online here for you to read.­

If you would like to find out more about our club you should just come out one weekend, failing that, please complete our contact form
