Tauranga Model Aircraft Club

The official website for the Tauranga Model Aircraft Club Inc. New Zealand.

Annual Auction

Each year the club holds an annual auction of model aeroplanes and associated equipment.  This is one of the major events on the club calendar and is one of the largest model aero auctions in the country. It attracts aeromodellers from around the country to both buy and sell.  The auction is generally held in the main hangar of Classic Flyers at Tauranga airport. This provides a venue among full size aircraft memorabilia, with refreshments available, and an aviation themed playground for the little ones.
