About Rotorua Aero Club

We provide a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for recreational pilots to go out flying and socialise with other like-minded individuals. Our focus is on recreational aviation and getting people into flying.

We are based at the Rotorua Airport. Not only is this central location ideal for our members and students, but we are only minutes away from some of the most breathtaking geothermal scenery in New Zealand.

Rotorua has many advantages as a base. Pilots learn to cope with the radio work and traffic procedures in a controlled air space, yet we are only a few minutes flying time to uncontrolled and less congested airspace to the East.

Come and Meet Like Minded People

We currently meet at Rotorua Airport once a month.

Usually on the third Sunday of each month, for a Flying Sunday. We are based at the Southern Hangar, beside River Rats Rafting company, courtesy of Tony Todd. Keep and eye on Facebook for all updates. We usually have a BBQ or lunch available for $5 as well as tea and coffee. Everybody is welcome and this is a good opportunity to come and discuss flying and flight training in an informal setting.
