New Site protocol for flying at Mauao (Mt Maunganui)

In a continued effort to improve safety and ensure long the long term future of flying at Mauao the BOP club has negotiated new protocols that apply to all pilots. 
Mauao is a Historic Reserve under the Reserves Act 1977, and is private land owned by the Mauao Trust. It is used and enjoyed as a public space so in order to maintain good relationships with the land owners and the joint Board (Nga Poutiri Ao O Mauao, which includes Tauranga City Council) it's vital we follow rules to ensure minimal disturbance to the public during our activities.
Please follow this link to get full information about the site before you go flying there.
