Historical Notes: Seagrove Aerodrome was part of an RNZAF flying training station (RNZAF Station Seagrove) established during the Second world War. The station and runways were built in 1942 and operated as a training station from that year to 1944. Seagrove was also a base for the American Marine Corps from May to June 1943. After the war the site reverted to farmland.
