Hawera Aero Club Club Profile

Browse / Clubs / Aeronautics Clubs / Hawera Aero Club


We are a private airfield located on Waihi Road (State Highway Three), the main road North from Hawera.  We are the only aerodrome in South Taranaki.

The Aeroclub's history dates back to 1929 when the first aerodrome was leased at Dunlop Field, Turuturu Road. In 1935 the property of A. Spratt was purchased by the aeroclub and the site developed into a airfield for the region's benefit. This is the site still in use today. The hangar that can be seen from the main road is the original hangar originally built at Dunlop Field.

We are easy to find from the air as well.

Mt Taranaki stands out for some distance by air, and as you come closer the Kiwi Co-operative Dairy Factory (now known as Fonterra) is the next most distinctive land mark. This is the large "white" complex of buildings on the south-eastern side of Hawera. Once you locate Hawera and its famous water tower, all you need to do is line up Kiwi with the water tower and basically you are pointed straight up runway 32 when approaching from the south.

Local aerodrome radio frequency is 119.1 and you can find the AWIB on 123.45 with four clicks in quick succession.

We have avgas 100 (BP swipe card).
