The Soaring Kiwi and the Sauerkraut


I’m an ex-Wellington club hg and pg pilot, who moved to Munich, Germany around 14 years ago.

I’ve just released a (self-published) book that I reckon NZ pilots would find funny and interesting.

The book is initially available as an eBook on Amazon, iTunes and Kobo, but is coming out in paperback and will also be available in other stores in NZ in the next couple of weeks.

About the Video Montage

Due to problems with Vimeo and YouTube RSS feeds, we have had to change the way the Montage is created.

Unfortunately Vimeo is no longer a viable option, and although the Vimeo Group was the simpler management model, YouTube is currently the only other "simple" option.

The Montage is now created from a YouTube Playlist, displaying the last 12 videos added to the playlist.

If you want your YouTube video to be added to the playlist, you will need to email the YouTube link to NZ HGPA, and it will subsequently be displayed after moderation.

Happy filming, and thanks for your contributions.

Update: 18 July 2015, YouTube moved the goalposts again, but I finally got it to work. Yipee!
