The RNZAC Annual General Meeting was held electronically.
Twentysix clubs registered delegates which well exceeded the number required to have a quorum.

Electronic voting papers were sent to registered delegates. A different voting paper was used for the Northern Region where there was a contest for the Regional Representative position.
The sucessfull candidate for the Northern Region was Cameron Sutherland nominated by the Otamatea Aero Club.
In all 25 voting papers were returned, with almost 100% of the respondants approving the motions put, albeit many were necessary annual housekeeping maters.
A three-thread open forum was launched, where all club members, executive members, delegates, could ask questions and make comments. This achieved a lessor participation.
Recreational Aviation Restored
All aviation activity is permitted under Level 1 COVID-19 restrictions. That includes: air transport, commercial and agricultural aviation, general aviation, private business flying and all recreational aviation activities. You can fly to any destination within New Zealand.
Dual training flights are permitted providing the "Guidance for aviation activity" conditions (below) are followed.
As a result of the uncertainty created by the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly as it relates to the ability to travel within our country, the Flying NZ Executive decided to cancel the 2020 Flying NZ conference.
A further major factor in making this decision was that our clubs will already be feeling financial pressure from not being able to operate for at least the four week Level 4 Alert lock-down period and will be keen to make cost savings wherever possible.
It has been announced that there will be significant pilot redundancies in the airline industry. It will take some time for both domestic and international airline passenger numbers to get back to pre pandemic levels. Only the full recovery of our tourism industry will create pre pandemic demands.
While we have canceled the conference, the Flying NZ Executive is keen to help clubs maintain the passion for flying that is the fabric of Sport and Recreational flying in New Zealand. Please allow the discussion that may have taken place during the Conference sessions or even around the bar continue
Clubs and affiliated members are welcome to share their ideas on how Flying NZ can help clubs stimulate Sport and Recreational activity once the present flying ban is over.
