Youth Glide New Zealand (YGNZ), alongside the Greytown Soaring Centre, is excited to be hosting the The George Rogers Memorial – Greytown Mini Camp 2019 during the Labour weekend holiday at Papawai Airstrip.
George Rogers made huge contributions to New Zealand gliding at all levels. He is one of only 1 of 11 pilots to be honoured by Gliding NZ with Life Membership.
In recent years George dedicated much of his time to helping young pilots of the Wellington Gliding Club gain their qualifications in both flying and engineering, a task he performed with dedication and passion.
George sadly passed away shortly prior to labour weekend 2018. In honour of his memory our annual Greytown Youth Glide Mini Camp will be known as The George Rogers Memorial – Greytown Mini Camp.
