Important Notice:

Our new clubhouse has kitchen, lounge and ablution facilities that flying visitors are welcome to make use of. We also have a small bunkroom available for transient or stranded flyers. Please contact a club or committee member to arrange access. Temporary hangar space is still very limited until a new club hangar is built later this year.

Welcome to the Canterbury Recreational Aircraft Club.

­Come Fly With Me

In conjunction with PlainsFM, each month the club is giving a free flight to a deserving person nominated by the PlainsFM listeners. Read about September Winner Ian Jury's flight here.­

­Based at Rangiora, New Zealand, our club is a strong and growing group of people who fly and talk about recreational aircraft.

We have very modern facilities for use by our club members including a large hangar in which members can house aircraft, and another hangar under construction. Rangiora Airfield which is possibly the fastest growing aviation site in New Zealand.


­The club owns two aircraft, Rans S6 ZK-JOR, and Tecnam P92 Echo ZK-RGA (currently being delivered). The club has sold its older RANS S6, ZK-JOL. We also have access through members to training in other 3-axis and weight-shift aircraft.

We now welcome members from all Part 149 Organisations - Click For Information To fly our aircraft you will need a Microlight Pilot Certificate (or a PPL/RPL as long as you belong to the RNZAC), to get started you can contact one of our number of instructors who will not only teach you to fly, but also help you with the minimal paperwork. 

Every couple of months we send a newsletter out to our members, we have them online here for you to read.­

If you would like to find out more about our club you should just come out one weekend, failing that, please complete our contact form
