Mount Maunganui

After a meeting with the Council + Mount Ranger regarding the ban over the Christmas period:-

basically, the flying ban is up to each pilot’s discretion, with 2 conditions:

- no flying behind the tree line (norfolk pines)
- absolutely no flying/landing close to people or crowds when the beach is busy

They agreed that we police ourselves and use our common sense so please be sensible.

Also Corey Price from CAA has already checked some pilots at the Mount, and two paraglider pilots were flying in breach of the rules (I’m not sure of the outcome). He asked me to pass on the following message:

“I have other investigations coming up over the next few months which are likely to take me back to Tauranga. CAA is monitoring the site so make sure that you are carrying your pilot certificate with you and have evidence that your wings have had a current warrant of fitness inspection.”
