The Central Hawkes Bay Aero Club is situated at Waipukurau, approximately 40 minutes driving time south of Hastings in the province of  Hawkes Bay, on the east coast of the North Island, New Zealand.

The CHB Aero Club has an active flying membership and also many private owner members who keep their aircraft either on the airfield or on private properties nearby.   
clubroomsActivities undertaken at the Club include an annual "Dawn Raid" which is usually held in May. The New Zealand Aerobatic Club holds their annual competitions here in March each year. The Club is active on weekends and at other times on request with the Chief Flying Instructor.

To the east are beautiful sandy beaches and to the west the towering Ruahine Ranges.
