This was the Day!!!!!.... 1200 23rd August 2014 we had been waiting for. In its new livery of the Air Training Corps it took off from Auckland Gliding Clubs base Drury... 17 minutes later... all was good
back on the ground handling test done and loads of smiles..the dream has come true.....
Just a few little issues,but we expected these. There has been a lot of water under the bridge since we started on this project with the aircraft owner, almost 1 year ago and a few people wondering if we would complete it.
Though we are back in the air,we still need to fund our wish list to improve GNW, as we set out with the many requests for funding and or for sponsors to make the upgrades and improvements we need for the Cadets and of course purchase this aircraft for the Pegasus Flying Trust..its future for cadets to use..
Thanks to the RNZAFA Northshore Branch for your donation, this really helps and we hope to get more to assist these young cadets to learn more about flying.
