Welcome to the Christchurch Model Aero Club Web pages.

A model aircraft club situated on the beautiful Canterbury Plains of New Zealand, just a few km's outside of Christchurch and catering for all types and sizes of model planes and flying types.

It is with deep regret and sadness that we announce having lost

another of our club stalwarts and Vintage Officer.

Bruce Weatherall - a dedicated free flighter to the end. You caught

the biggest thermal of all my friend - may you soar forever.

Flying is normally done on both Saturdays & Sundays for the different classes (weather permitting) and also on Wednesdays for those so lucky.

  • The 'default' activities at the Willows are Soaring Sat am/Sun pm and Power Sat pm/Sun am but may be different on Contest days - see calendars.

  • Wednesday mornings (all classes)

Interested in coming along to watch or join, or just to get some more info?

Contact the Club Pres.   Grahame Hart  -  021 2436127 

Club Secretary.                 Graham Moffat  - 021 02254347 

All visitors are welcome at the Willows to watch and chat with the guys at any time - just keep gates closed and drive carefully along the fence lines and park next to other cars.

Please keep a watch out for stray Free Flight models both in the air and on the ground!
