We’ve had the ever popular car enthusiasts Swap Meet, the Targa race, and a wee while ago, a get to gether at the Mercer Airport – yes that’s right, Mercer Airport.

Thanks to some of the local property owners/developers, Neil and Dee, Mercer now has what used to be the “Auto Dome Motorcourt” building as it’s airport headquarters. A few weeks back they hosted

Members of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) who landed 38 light aircraft at Mercer Airport recently and spent the night at the airport, dining at the Tuakau Hotel. The airmen and their spouses had spent the week flying around the North Island
