    Port Taranaki - New Plymouth

    Hello , anyone out there from New Plymouth ?? Just been bitten by the slope soaring bug about two weeks ago when I was talking to a guy that was flying his V tail in front of the Fitzroy motor camp.Unfortunately everything he told me went in one ear and out the other because i was totally mesmerized by what the glider was doing. Since then I have built a coroflute eagle and almost finished a coro corsair ww2 and am itchin to fly. Just need a bit of local knowledge where newbie should start so would great the hear from anyone out there . batman
