Opening and closing Baring Head Airspace NZG674
Call 04 387 1980 and then choose option #9.
Tell the controllers at the tower that you want to open or close “Baring
Head Gliding Airspace 674″.
If you do not open the airspace and another air user complains we may lose
our ability to use this site!
If you do not close the airspace at the end of flying this will inconvenience other
airspace users and annoy the controllers.  However, the Tower will NOT initiate
Search & Rescue if they do not hear from you.
Keys and padlock
The GWRC has issued the club with two keys to access Baring Head.
One is for the main gate and the second is for HG pilots to access the
track down to the beach to retrieve wings.  Both keys are the same.
The keys are hidden off-site along with a combination lock.
One key is to be locked inside the lock-box located at the entrance gate.
The second key is to be taken on-site if HGs are flying – otherwise can also
be left in the lock-box.
Only club members who have agreed to the rules on this page will be advised
of the location of the keys.
