Clubs:

Two Flying Clubs operate from West Auckland Airport (Parakai): the 'Parakai Aviation Club' (PAC) and the 'Northland Microlight Club' (NMC).

 

Fly-Ins & other Aviation Events: The airport is happy to assist Aviation Clubs or other Clubs wanting a venue to hold events, so long as they are well organised, see Fly-in Planning Notes, and approved by the Airport Management.

The airport has various levels of facility and buildings available depending on the type of event. The Airport Management will provide a clean and tidy facility for the event, and wants it in the same condition afterwards, and to be covered for the direct costs (rubbish removal etc) of staging the event. For aviation events, the organising club can negotiate a bulk rate for landing fees or if they prefer the airport will collect them at the usual rates.

Before announcing an event, please check with the Airport Management for cost of venue, availability and special requirements.

The airport Courtesy Car is available for visiting aviators (if you wish to book the car in advance phone Simon, 09 420 8010). The Hall is available for events that are too large for the clubrooms to handle.
