2022 Great Northern Air Race
The Great Northern Air Race runs every January over Auckland Anniversary Weekend for over 25 years.
Typically a fleet of 15 to 30 aircraft set out on a prescribed course, going to places you would not normally go, all while taking some breathtaking photos and visiting some amazing North Island airfields.
Every day finishes with a social gathering for dinner where tall tales and laughs are shared by all.Amazing Places – The GNAR takes you places that you might not think to visit yourself. It’s always great to visit airfields/airports you haven’t been to before and meet the folks from the local aero club too.
Applying skills you have learnt and developing new ones too – It’s great to have the opportunity to use all that Navigation Knowledge and skills you acquired during your PPL in a realistic environment, all while knowing there are plenty of experienced pilots and instructors there to help you out.
Cruising – Developing a flight plan and flying it as accurately as you can
Racing – Setting a TAS and going for it.
