Academy students have the advantage of access to a large fleet of aircraft, ranging from basic trainers to multi engine instrument equipped aircraft including glass cockpit equipped aircraft. Currently the Academy’s training fleet consists of the following aircraft types:
Our aircraft are maintained to the highest possible safety standards by our own Engineering division—another unique feature to our organisation.
Learning to fly at an airport where the traffic mix ranges from B777 and A320s to 10 seater commuter and corporate aircraft, puts our students in a professional environment and gives them an advantage from the start of their training.
The Academy has exclusive use of its own satellite airfield just eight kilometres away, offering a quiet, focused training ground just outside the Christchurch air traffic zone. Such flexibility is unparalleled in New Zealand.
