Child Flight

It's all good in the hood

Our efforts around the country with Z Energy's Good in the Hood program has paid off. Earlier this year we flew to the South Island to promote Child Flight.  We are pleased to report that at least 12 flights will be undertaken in Nelson, Christchurch and Dunedin for special needs kids.

In addition we have support for two flights of the DC3 in Kaitaia as a result of a private backer and Z Kaitaia.

Whangarei was our most successful region, with 3 Z service stations giving us support.

We are also proud to announce that we won in two regions with Good in the Hood, Whakatane and Hamilton.

Ardmore Flying School + Child Flight

Mike Newman, CEO Ardmore Flying School, wanted his flying institution to be involved in a social enterprise project.  Marc White, CPL at the School, saw an opportunity to involve AFS with Child Flight and through a very interesting collaboration we started today with 5 flights for Parkside and Sommerville Special Schools.  

Also on board was Joel Holder another CPL at the School.  Two Cessna 172's were used which took the special students around the Sky Tower.  Thank you to Mike, Marc and Joel, looking forward to doing this again in the New Year.
