Ruatoria, Waiapu or Mount Hikurangi. If pilots flying in for an event celebrating 60 years of East Coast aviation this weekend can pronouce these names correctly, they'll be rewarded. 

Derek Fox is trying to encourage pilots to pronounce Māori placenames in what he says is the world's first Te Reo Māori Fly In, held in Ruatoria this weekend. 

He spoke to Corin Dann.
