WELCOME to the MFHB Website

 MODEL FLYING HAWKES BAY (MFHB)  has had numerous flying sites over the  years thanks to the help of the local farming community and other interested groups  and Aeromodelling enthusiasts in The Hawke's Bay were encouraged over 70 years  ago to form a group to promote the many types of aeromodelling activities  available.The first club in the district was The Hastings Model Aeroplane Club followed  by a similar group in Napier. Subsequently The Hawkes Bay Radio Flyers Inc. Was  established from members of both groups to form a solid base for the future of the  sport in the Hawke's Bay and District.

 In 1992 the club was introduced to its present flying site by The Hawke's Bay  Regional Council, this is a splendid facility at Awatoto, off Waitangi Road, beside the  Fertilizer Works just 6 kms South of Napier City.

 We also have an alternative electric site at the ROYS HILL RESERVE and Slope  soaring is flown from Ocean Beach and also South of Hastings at the top of  Burma  Road off the Te Hauke strait.

 Approximately bi-monthly, we endeavour to publish a NEWSLETTER on this  Website,  covering the recent activity within the club, together with news and articles  from the  wider aeromodelling community. The current copy can be accessed from the  MAIN  MENU on the top left of this page, or by clicking on the text below:


 As in the past we endeavour to give full report coverage on events such as  "WARBIRDS OVER AWATOTO", and associated rallies and competition events,  together with feature articles and member announcements not covered by the  newsletters. These features will all be accessable from the accompanying menus,  and there will be a continually updated calendar of club and associated events.  Recently we have established a Weather Station at Awatoto Field, and this loads  automatically at the bottom of this page.

 Your input, comments, opinions and news are always welcome, and can be sent to  "Brett the Editor" by clicking on the contact button at the head of this page.  Please  visit our Current Newsletter and enjoy the content.

 The weather station below offers real time information on conditions at Awatoto  Field  and the webcam refreshes every five minutes to give a view of the pits and  carpark at  the field.
