Default Summer (Dec-Mar 10) Tow Pilot / Instructor(s) wanted for NZadventure at Wellington Gliding Club

Summer (Dec-Mar 10) Tow Pilot / Instructor(s) wanted for NZ adventure
at Wellington Gliding Club

The Wellington Gliding Club (New Zealand) is looking for the
following people to help man our full time summer flying operation
which runs from the beginning of December 2008 until End March 2010:

One Tow Pilot - Piper Pawnee glider towing experience essential. A
Glider instructor rating would be really useful but not essential.

One or Two Glider Instructors - Internationally recognised Gliding
Instructor rating required. We will arrange your NZ cross
certification.

One or more Ground Coordinator(s) - This role helps move the gliders
around on the field, answers the phone on the field, meet and greets
people coming for a fly etc. It would suit someone travelling, with a
sense of humour, who wants a base and has an interest in flying or
aviation. It's a heap of fun and a very cheap way to learn to glide if
so desired. The role can be shared. To see what gliding life is all
about have a look at:

or excellent examples of local ridge running on
http://www.liftedfilms.com/index.html

All positions offer free accommodation (half star!) on the airfield,
the use of the club car, free glider time and a heap of fun. The
Gliding Instructor / Tow Pilot roles also have a $150 weekly food
allowance. A smaller food allowance may be possible for the Ground
Coordinator role depending on circumstances.

Roles can be for the entire summer period or part. Generally its
flying midweek if fine and weekends off but we are really flexible. If
its wet then you are free to travel etc. The club has two brand new
DG1000 training gliders so it's the latest hi tech equipment.

With the current recession and slow recovery (i.e. we dont expect the
usual volumes of tows / flights) it would ideally suit semi retired
glider 'flying for fun' and travel types rather than pilots chasing
hours.

Please contact:
