NZHGPA 50th Anniversary @ The Beehive, 11th Nov 2023, 11am – 2pm

Dear NZHGPA Club members

On November 11th this year we will be launching a year of celebrating 50 years of free flying in New Zealand.  At this event we want to recognise notable pilot achievements and/or contributions to the NZ freeflight community over the last 50 years.  These can be current or historical, living or deceased.  Achievements are split into 3 categories:

001 – Mention deserving 

002 – Prize deserving 

003 – Life Membership deserving 

Further information about each category and how to submit a nomination has been sent out to Club Presidents.  Please talk to your local club president with who you would like to nomination for any or all of these categories.
