Industry Relationships

Air New Zealand


Air New Zealand does not offer introductory pilot training to aspiring pilots. However, the Air New Zealand Academy of Learning has chosen four flight training organisations (FTOs) from throughout the country to be preferred providers for aspiring pilots.

IAANZ was chosen as a preferred flight training organisation after a thorough evaluation process that validated our training programmes and quality systems, as well as confirming our ability to offer airline-styled selection criteria and training requirements.

IAANZ collaborate with Air New Zealand to guarantee that the New Zealand aviation sector, particularly Air New Zealand, has a future supply of airline pilots.
