All our partner flying schools in Australia and New Zealand have a very rich aviation industry. They have been around for almost 100 years, which makes them the leaders in this region for pilot training. Committed to the highest standards of training excellence, these organisations are managed by some of the industry’s most experienced aviation professionals, who are dedicated to not just transferring their knowledge on to our students, but to developing the skills of our cadets to the highest level.
New Zealand Aviation is situated at the Matamata airfield, in the Waikato farmlands. The area is a rural community of about 6000 people, nestled at the base of the Kaimai ranges. The updrafts from these hills make this area and its surrounds a world-class location for flying, gliding and other activities.
