New Zealand’s only professional pilot training in a major International Aviation Environment
Welcome to the International Aviation Academy
Located at Christchurch International Airport in a stand-out, modern complex is the International Aviation Academy of New Zealand (IAANZ), the home to around 100 commercial pilot and flight instructor trainees per year.
Being an Air New Zealand Preferred Flight Training Organisation, the IAANZ’s training programmes have been designed to deliver ‘airline ready’ pilots who are well matched to the changing demands of the airline industry.
The advantages of training at an International airport are huge, and allow trainee pilots to develop skills in a truly professional airline environment.
