Since 1929

We've been teaching Wellingtonians to fly for a while now.

In fact, our Club used Rongotai airfield when it was a big grassy paddock.

Our instructing team are supported by a volunteer committee. Together with our members, it means we've got a pretty sweet aviation community in our nation's capital.
