We're starting off from where we left off last time, Taupo (NZAP)
Something different this time, no flight plan, just pure, pure VFR (so choose nice weather) with no landings in between.
We're going to follow the Waikato River downstream from the Taupo Control Gates to the river mouth at Port Waikato, before landing at Ardmore (NZAR).
This will be a real visual feast which will include:
- Ohaaki and Huntly Power Stations
- Hydroelectric Dams - Aratiatia, Ohakuri, Atiamuri, Whakamaru, Maraetai 1 and 2, Waipapa, Arapuni and Karapiro
- Hobbiton (a slight excursion to get there)
- Hampton Downs Motorsport Park
- Meremere Dragway
- Pukekohe Race Track
Flying will be in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020.
