Hire of clubrooms and bar

The aero club has a fully equipped bar and clubrooms which are available for hire for social events, meetings, weddings, 21st celebrations, etc. Seating capacity of the main clubroom is approximately 100 people. The aircraft hangar adjoins the bar and can be kitted out with fold away tables and chairs for larger events. A kitchen with fridge, oven, microwave, and eating utensils is located in one corner of the clubroom. Toilets and shower facilities are also available.

We also have a briefing room equipped with whiteboard, power point projector and screen, and seating for 6-9 students.

You are welcome to visit the aero club at any time (we are open 7 days a week) to view the facilities first hand. If you are interested in hiring the clubrooms or briefing room, then you should contact Bar Manager Dick Hansen on 027 4838243 or palmbeachdiner@xtra.co.nz. A general guide on prices is shown below – please be aware, however, that for larger events the cost will depend on your requirements regarding bar staff, catering, seating capacity, etc. For use of the licenced bar, at least six weeks’ notice is required for a special bar licence to be issued by the Tauranga City Council. The aeroclub will make the application for this licence for you and provide bar staff behind the bar for your event – this adds $200 to the cost of facility hire (see below).
