Where is our radio control flying site:

Driving south from New Plymouth on Junction Road/SH3, turn right into Upland Road (toward the mountain...if you can’t see it, you probably shouldn’t be going flying!!) approximately 800m after Egmont Village.  Enter the Ferdene Quarry on your left.  WARNING! DO NOT DRIVE INTO THE QUARRY!  Turn left directly after the large rock (LHS) and follow the track up and around to the right, beside the Microlight airstrip.  Then carry on straight ahead, driving parallel with the microlight strip until you see the clubhouse ahead slightly to the right.  Please give way to ANY earthmoving machinery you encounter and observe the 20km/hr speed limit at all times.  For more information, please refer to the map below.

Flying is possible most days from around 8am.  For the sake of the residents, please respect the start time.
