Flight Operations and Safety
The rules are reviewed and updated periodically. To access the current rules click here.
Total Fire Bans
Should a Total Fire Ban be in effect for the NSW Rural Fire Service Greater Hunter Area the flying field is CLOSED. To check current fire conditions click here.
Hunter Wetlands National Park
The flying field is located within a National Park and as such NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service rules apply.
The Park's access status affects use of the flying field. Should the Park be CLOSED a sign is displayed below the Hunter Wetlands National Park sign situated on the left hand side of the road just after you cross the bridge onto the island. To check the Park's status click here.
Note: The flying field is Closed when a Total Fire Ban is in effect even if the Park's access status is Open.
7 days a week during daylight hours (night flying on approval only) except when the National Park is closed or a Total Fire Ban is in effect.
Times must be strictly adhered to, or the Club risks having more restricted operating times imposed on it, or the total loss of the field to power models.
