The Wairarapa Model Aero Club is a small club of about 36 members. Its aim is primarily to enjoy aeromodelling and to provide the facilities and means for its members to have fun with the sport in a safe and controlled environment. We lease an area at Masterton’s Hood Aerodrome and club days on Sunday and Thursday mornings attract a good following.
The Wairarapa Model Aero Club is affiliated to the Model Flying New Zealand, the national body for the sport in the country, and abides by its regulations. We also help out with hosting the annual MFNZ National Championships which are held in the Wairarapa on a regular basis.
Several club members are approved MFNZ instructors and are more than happy to share their expertise and advice with anyone. We are also happy to teach you how to fly using the clubs own training aircraft using dual-controls.
