Hey mates, NZ is great!

Recommended Posts

You guys and girls might be interested in some pictures of NZ from above!

 

I travelled down to CHC last year in april and rented an aeroplane at the CAC (Canterbury Aeroclub), flying around for almost two weeks. You can find lots of pictures of my trip and of your great islands at my homepage (+400 pixtures, 40 MB, several chapters with thumbnails). Have fun!

Hi Andreas,

 

What a fantastic record of your New Zealand holiday. The photos and commentary were teriific.

 

As an Australian living in Melbourne, I lived in New Zealand for three years in the 80's and loved it. The folk are very friendly, and there is so much to see as you showed.

 

Laughed at your spelling of Kangaroo.

 

Well done. And of course I remember you well from FSBUILD2 days.

 

Merry Christmas.

 

Cheers

Ian M

Hey,

 

good you pulled up this thread, I had forgotten about it

 

Thanks for all your comments!

 

And: I will be back in NZ next month! I will arrive in Auckland on April 16. I am going to rent a plane in Hamilton and I am planning to fly down to the Fjordlands starting April 19. If there are some VATSIM-buddies in Hamilton, please speak up! I guess I will stop in Wellington, Christchruch, Napier and Great Barrier Island as well

Hey,

 

well, I am planning on touring down to the South, I want to visit (again) Hokitika, Nelson, Kaikoura, Christchruch, Wellington, New Plymoth, Great Barrier Island and new this time Napier, Queenstown, Keri Keri etc... And White Island is a must!

 

In case you have time, let me know! I really would like to have a beer with you at one of these airfields. If you live somewhere else, let me know. "My" Piper Archer is flexible!

Hi there!

 

I am currently in Hamilton. We will depart tomorrow morning with ZK-UFS, a rusty but solid Piper Archer II

As there's a cold front coming in from the southwest, we will try to fly as far south as possible, our first destination will probably be Nelson or Kaikoura, depending on our mood. Christchurch will be the next place to touch down, but it is not yet decided whether it will be on the way down south (to Queenstown) or on the way back north later.

 

Probably we gonna have a free seat for a flight around CHC, you are welcome to book flights with Fox International Airways

 

Best is if you send me your contact-details via e-mail, if you wish to meet a bunch of crazy Germans... pilot_(at)_gmx.net_ (remove the "_").

Hi Beverley!

 

Finally I find the time to answer here.... we are currently in Ahipara in a truely great backpacker called "Endless Summer Lodge". It is like a hotel indeed, 90 mile beach is 50m from the doorstep!

 

It was a pleasure to meet you, Beverley, down in Christchurch! That's how I know VATSIM: you meet people even at the end of the world and you understand each other. You can be sure that I will be back on some nice day, I like these two islands (and I still have to see NZ's third island ).

Again thanks for meeting us crazy Krauts, see you next time and I will fly in NZ on VATSIM as well!
