Brad and Dan decided to land at the Maitland. So we decided with Jeff that we are gonna be good buddies and landed next to them. The aerotow out (Mike Till with the Fatman) was super scenic, and I have finally flown low anough above thoose purple fllowers (Lupins) that colour the north end of Ohau purple. Thanks for the adventurous week Brad and Jeff. We would not have done this without you. :)who sad outlandings cant add to your day???:D (Order this print on Hahnemuehle' fine art pearl ; you won't be disappointed;) — Products shown: 61cmx133cm print on canvas. ...

Gliding in New Zealand

The South Island of New Zealand, with Omarama approximately in the centre, produces some of the worldโ€™s best wave flying as well as astonishing ridge, thermal and convergence soaring amidst the spectacular and dramatic mountains of the Southern Alps.
