Christchurch International Airport is the second largest airport in New Zealand and is fully equipped to international standards.

Students have a unique opportunity to be exposed to a busy controlled aviation environment. The experience gained flying at Christchurch Airport gives IAANZ trained private pilots the experience and confidence to fly into any certified airport in New Zealand.

West Melton

Our West Melton airfield, just 6 minutes flying from Christchurch, is reserved for the exclusive use of the Canterbury Aero Club. This provides an area for our members to train in as well as a base to fly our club aircraft from privately.

West Melton has regular flight training and private hire available daily with instructors and aircraft standing by. Our welcoming clubhouse and 6-runway airfield are proudly maintained by our members. West Melton provides an excellent place to hold regular social events where members make new friends and compare flying experiences. Families and friends are also very welcome.
