We are very fortunate to be able to welcome well known local aviation advocate John Skene as guest speaker at our May 31 Club night.
After training as an aircraft engineer with our national carrier John took redundancy and then finished his working life as an engineer with CAA. He now spends much of his time promoting the aviation history of New Zealand and among his many activities presents a monthly radio broadcast, produces a regular newsletter and hosts a website https://aviation-tales.com/
Johns presentation style is relaxed and anecdotal and he recently gave an extremely well received presentation to the Kapiti Aeromodelling club subsequent to which several members suggested we contact him as a speaker for our club night.
Based in the Kapiti coast, John is going to considerable effort to come to our Wednesday evening clubnight so it would be greatly appreciated if our club members give him a responding turnout.
Don’t forget to bring along something for the Show and Tell.
Interested in flying Radio Control model aircraft, helicopters or multirotors ?
We welcome anyone interested to come and view model aircraft and multirotors. Seddon Range is our primary flying site in Trentham, Upper Hutt, typically on a Sunday morning but you can check the calendar to see when the field is open and the webcams to see if anyone is flying (weather dependent).
Here you will find information about our club, activities, how to get started with model aircraft, and more.
The Club enjoys a strong following of more than one hundred members who fly radio-controlled planes, gliders (slope, thermal soaring and hand launch), helicopters, as well as a small group of dedicated free flight and control-line enthusiasts, and a growing number of multi-rotor pilots. Competitions in various model classes such as aerobatics, scale, pylon, and vintage are held throughout the year.
A warm welcome is extended to past, present and potential members. Please come to our next monthly club meeting (everyone is welcome at our club meetings, whether you are a member or not), or visit one of our flying fields, to meet us and learn more about how you can learn to fly.
Thanks for visiting our website, we hope to see you again soon!
