Pilots catered for at Glentanner Park Mount Cook.
As the fog smothered Twizel, just 30km down the road at Glentanner Park (Mount Cook) the sun was shining. Mount Cook and the surrounding alps looked particularly impressive, with the fresh snow a beautiful contrast to the majestic blue sky. A perfect day to be outside, an even better one to be flying!
Students from Canterbury Aero Club stopped off at Glentanner Park today (Thursday 3rd June) on their way from Queenstown to Christchurch. They were on their last leg after a four day ‘fly away’ as part of the commercial hour building phase of their Fixed Wing Commercial Licence. Canterbury Aero Club student Tom Jones said they had also been up to the North Island, flying Archers, Warriors and Tomahawks and added that it was great to finally have some good weather.
Students and their instructors were the first aviation club to make use of the Glentanner Park aviation all day breakfast offer. The offer includes an all day breakfast for only $10 for anyone that lands at Glentanner Airfield from 1st June 2010 – 30th September 2010. Glentanner Park is a great place to stop, with a 1km long sealed run way and a cafe for a delicious lunch and some coffee. Glentanner is also the holiday park, flightseeing and activity centre for the Mount Cook region.
