New Zealand Flight Training


Flying is fun, challenging and rewarding. It is a fast, safe and cost-effective way to travel.

With a PPL you are taking charge of an aircraft and flying yourself.

In New Zealand there are no minimum educational requirements to start aviation training. An understanding of Mathematics and Physics is helpful.


A CPL is the next step up from a PPL.

With this licence you gain a significant amount more flying experience and it also means that you can fly for hire or reward. You need to be at least 18 years old to hold a CPL.

We offer a unique programme in that unlike other training organisations in the South Island we are based within the mountains.


Wanaka is the gateway to the Mt Aspiring National Park. Virtually every flight from this unique location interacts with the mountains.

Mountain flying is the ultimate from of VFR flight. While challenging your skill and ability to perform precisely, mountain flying from Wanaka provides an opportunity to traverse spectacular and breathtaking terrain within our backyard.
