The weather played it part (maybe to hot), everyone was trying to keep out of the sun were possible.

There was also a great public turnout.

Thanks to all those that can along and the helpers on the day.

Our field – Very important message

Hello all, 

We have had a complaint regarding planes flying near the buildings, and certainly outside the boundaries.

Here is the shortened message we received from the owners of the park we fly at (Goodmans)

“A customer of the Highbrook portfolio, located near the Aero Modellers licensed area, within the parkland, has advised that on Monday mid-afternoon a plane was spotted flying near their building.
Please can you ensure that members of the club are reminded of the protocols around the flying areas, as this is considered a health & safety risk.”

This is a VERY serious matter. If this happens again, we risk losing our license to occupy and we will be kicked off.  

We ask that the members that flew Monday (11th Feb) mid-afternoon to contact us on this email address ( ) to see if it was their plane that may have been over the buildings and explain what happened and how we can work together to make sure it does not happen again. 

If anyone can identify the plane and it’s owner please contact the committee also through the email. 

Kind regards, HAM Committee

Awatoto Warbirds 2019 photos

Antony took his NZ Mustang to the Awatoto 2019 Warbirds down in Hasting over the last weekend. There were the usual guys with their big warbirds from all over the North Island. On the Sunday with great weather there was a large public attendance of over 600 people there. Frazer Briggs did his usual great lunch time free style display to music. Even Antony got some applause for his short one man display with his P51d which behaved itself for once.

Saturday 19th Jan

HB on Sat & the usual suspects were there.
Ant spent an hour in the mud retrieving his large profile Extra where it had been from the week before. Nothing much to reuse apart from control linkages etc, carbon wing rod. All the electronic were shot. Balsa water logged.
Arjen was helping Al flying his mustang, they had some good flights. The usual Mustang low passes.
