Welcome to Hastings Aerodrome…..
Hastings Bridge Pa aerodrome (NZHS) has no Air Traffic Control. It is
uncontrolled. The aerodrome can be busy, used by a diverse range of operations
& operators.
Some aircraft may be NORDO (non radio) as well so lookout is extremely important.

Common Frequency Zone or CFZ.
A CFZ has been established around Hastings aerodrome operating on a
frequency of 125.8 KHz. The boundary of this CFZ is indicated on the
Visual Navigation Chart # C4.
Pilots should transmit their position, altitude and intentions when entering
the CFZ. It is better to give your position reports relative to the aerodrome
because some pilots may not be familiar with local place names.

Circuit traffic.
Hastings aerodrome utilizes six vectors: 01/19 seal, 01/19 grass, and
11/29.
Gliders: Gliders and their tow planes operating from Hastings aerodrome
will generally depart to the east when taking off, and will join the
circuit to land from the east. When joining downwind they will operate
not above 900’ indicated, 800’ AGL.
Helicopters: Helicopter operations from the airfield departing or joining
from the east will generally operate below circuit altitude to prevent
conflict. When joining from the west helicopters will join
straight into the circuit but will give way to established circuit traffic.

Aerodrome Departures
Be aware that IFR aircraft departing Hastings may carry out non standard
turns after take off. Other aircraft departing to the east off runway 01 or 19
shall either : depart via the circuit and maintain circuit altitude until east of
the airfield and then continue to climb once clear, or, climb on the runway
centreline until clear of the circuit and then turn towards the east. This is to
avoid conflict with aircraft joining overhead.

Safe Flying.
