Last weekend, the 2nd and 3rd of July as most of New Zealand were enjoying the warm weather, there was a group of Cessna Plane enthusiasts who were even more thrilled with the unseasonably warm and sunny conditions.

Glentanner Park Centre held, the now annual, Cessna 180 and 185 ‘Fly in’. Pilots and their mates or partners landed at Glentanner for the weekend, and enjoyed an action packed few days.

They all made the most of the fantastic facilities at Glentanner Park which includes a 1km long sealed runway, licensed café and cabin accommodation. Not to mention the close proximity to Aoraki Mount Cook – particularly in flying Time! “The event of was a real success, everyone had so much fun and the weather was superb” said Fly in orgraniser Tony Delaney.

After a fantastic flight over to Black Forest with packed lunches, the group enjoyed a delightful evening which included a Mid Winter Christmas Dinner with roast beef and pork, salmon, roast veges, hot soup and a selection of canapés. The biggest hit though was the mulled wine!

Glentanner Park Centre staff also had a great time, and enjoyed the company of their guests. “It was great to have such a fun group in, especially at this time of year when we are generally quiet – a perfect opportunity for groups to make the most of our facilities” said Glentanner Park Accommodation Manager Viv Arthur.
