Gliding New Zealand National Club Class Championships 2015

January 21, 2015 - January 31, 2015

Club Class Nationals 2015

January 21-31, 2015

Auckland Gliding Club, Drury

You’ll really enjoy our site:

  • Located at the foot of the Drury Hills, where the bush-clad slopes provide an early start to thermal activity
  • Just 2 glides to the early convergence along the Firth of Thames
  • Easy access to the Swamp and Kaimai Ridge takes you onto the edge of the Central Plateau for longer tasks
  • Convenient forest at Maramarua for evening thermals to get you home


Or alternatively, try a different type of terrain

  • Access the hill country West of the Waikato River without airspace worries
  • Pio Pio via back of Pirongia Mountain, 300 km out & return
  • Plenty of airstrips in the hills
  • How about “around Hamilton airspace”?


And on the way home, either way, convergences set up to make your life interesting.

Longest flight from our site:  Patrick Driessen, 730 km FAI Triangle!

Camping and Catering on site!

Accommodation handy (lots of options)

Plenty of “wet day” activities nearby

Email:  clubclass@glidingauckland.co.nz with your enquiries; we already have a list of top class competitors to make this a serious contest.  Entries limited to 30 by size of airfield.
