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.
