Our Airfields

Christchurch International Airport is the second largest airport in New Zealand and has all IFR approach/departure aids. Students at the IAANZ have a unique opportunity to train in an airline environment and be exposed to airline influences. Air New Zealand's maintenance facilities, and Airways NZ's Air traffic Centre, which provides air traffic control for the whole of New Zealand, are both located in Christchurch, the aviation capital of New Zealand.

But the Academy's students have the best of both worlds.

Our West Melton airfield, just six minutes flying from Christchurch, is reserved for the exclusive use of the Academy and the Canterbury Aero Club, providing a more relaxed area for training, away from the busy commercial airport when necessary.

We have three low flying and three general training areas located in close proximity and our location close to the Southern Alps provides the ideal environment for total pilot training.
