Nelson Model Aero Club's flying site is located on the Wakapuaka sand flats off state highway 6 approximately 9.5km north of the roundabout opposite the Nelson Trafalgar Centre (follow the Blenheim/Picton signs from Nelson).
Club members meet at the flying site every Sunday and Wednesday morning. If you are interested in radio controlled flying, please feel free to visit our flying field on a club day.
As the gate to the site is normally locked visitors are encouraged to walk out to the grassed area where models are prepared (but please for your own safety – don’t walk on the runway to get there).
As well as our regular Sunday and Wednesday club days at the sand flats we also have several ‘float fly' and ‘slope soaring’ locations around the Nelson area. We also meet at the Hope Recreation Hall (Main Road Hope) regularly for indoor aircraft and helicopter flying.
Indoor flying at the Hope Recreation Hall coming soon…
