Concerned tenants meet at Te Kowhai
Hamilton lawyer Jarrod True addresses a meeting of aircraft owners, hangar tenants and supporters who have expressed concern over recent actions taken by the owners of Te Kowhai airfield, members of the family of the late Max Clear who developed the rural aviation facility on his Waikato dairy farm.
Max often stated how he wanted his airfield to be a friendly country location at which people could enjoy recreational flying and comradeship.
Some hangars are reported to have been locked and their tenants denied entry, and those present expressed alarm at the erection of a fence across the runway. A steering committee has been formed to try to resolve the situation.
