Who We Are
Mt Taranaki stands out for some distance by air, and as you come closer the Fonterra Dairy Factory 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 Fonterra with the water tower and basically you are pointed straight up runway 32 when approaching from the south.
Activate the AWIB on 123.45 with four clicks in quick succession.
Runway 32-14 can be lit for night operations (PAL, 4 clicks in quick succession on 124.00).
Watch this space - as we are working on getting new fuel pumps. The club has a small trailer tank in the meantime - This can be available if needed but needs to be arrange before hand.
