Aussie Group Flight Team: PNG Bush Flying

Join us as we depart Goroga(AYGA) for some small strips around PNG to deliver cargo to the local viliages and finally return to Goroga our base.

We will fly the route in either the Grand Caravan or Kodiak.

Details to follow. Hope you can join us.

Hi Paul, I know the airport called Goroga is one from online & has been spelt this way. It’s incorrect however & the correct name for it is Goroka with a “k”.
Haven’t done any online group flights yet & not sure I’ll be able to join for this one but could be interested as I grew up in PNG & spent 5 years at Mt Hagen. Have recently been flying the Milviz PC6 there in VR & enjoying it immensely. One of my favourite places to fly in the sim & real life when we lived there.


Thanks for your feedback. Hope you can join us in a future flight soon.

Regards, Paul
