Pilot just moved in from out of town


My name is Stan. I'm a P3 that just moved into Christchurch from the States with coastal, desert, and mountain flying experience between Oregon, Washington, California, Hawaii, Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

I'm rather keen on meeting with local pilots to fly out here. Flying is my passion. So, please, if are flying around Christchurch or leaving town for the day, let me know. I am a PhD student, so my hours are often flexible.

Can I put my number here or is this forum public?


Getting involved

Hi all,

I've just joined the Canterbury Club and I'm keen to do a lot of flying this season. I'd like to get PG3 this season, but more importantly I'd like to meet and fly with other keen paragliders in the area. I've had some instruction in coastal, XC and speed riding. I typically work two weeks of biodiversity monitoring and then I have a week off. Would be great to get involved in some trips.

RASP not broken

I know a few of you have noticed that the BLIP maps on RASP seem a bit odd. (i.e. blue squares around Flock Hill). The sounding for Flock Hill has also been wrong. Anyhow, I contacted Mats Henrikson who runs RASP and he knows about the issue. Apparently it is due to the NOAA data and physics model thinking the whole area is covered in Snow. Rest assured, everything will come right from Mid Oct onwards, when it finally thinks the snow has melted!
