The Cen­tral Otago Fly­ing Club is on a high.

Mem­ber­ship of the Alexan­dra Air­port-based club has grown to over 50, and up to 50 air­craft are reg­u­larly us­ing the fa­cil­i­ties.

The club owns two air­craft, a Cessna 172 and a two-seater Twin Astir glider.

Club pres­i­dent Gary Wil­son said the air­port was used as a base by gen­eral avi­a­tion pi­lots from across the coun­try.
