Papawai Road joins State Highway 2 near the southern end of Greytown, opposite the Challenge petrol Station which is on the left-hand side of SH2 if approaching from the south. There is also an AA sign saying “Gliding Club”. Drive to the end of Papawai Road, where it forks into Tilsons, Pah and Hecklers Roads. Veer left down Tilsons Road for about half a kilometre (slowly please) and turn right into the Airfield.
