Charlie Draper is hosting this fundraiser again at Kimberly Road, Darfield. 

It is a chance to show the public your aircraft and talk to people about being a pilot.

Charlie says that any one who wants to fly-in on the Saturday will be looked after and he will get you into Darfield for accommodation.


This is not and AOPA NZ run event but we want to let you know it is on so you can support Charlie and this community fundraiser.
