We've been teaching Wellingtonians to fly for a while now.
In fact, our Club used Rongotai airfield when it was just a big grassy paddock, well before it became the international airport we know today.
We are a community based organisation who offer memberships to our club and its facilities.
This means that our members pay an annual subscription, that help support the club while also giving them member benefits.
Our instructing team are supported by a volunteer committee. Together with our members, it means we've got a great aviation community in our nation's capital.
The club owns 4 aircraft and leases several others in addition to being able to access many other types in the region… and if you’re looking for a type rating, or an experience, in something else, we can at least advise you who to approach.
Our training fleet includes…
- PA38 Piper Tomahawk
- PA28 Piper Cherokee
- C172 Cessna Skyhawk

Wellington offers a wide variety of conditions to train in, giving you the experience and confidence to fly anywhere in the country. Many people say that if you can fly in and out of Wellington you can fly anywhere!
Flying from an international airport means we operate in controlled airspace, giving you experience talking to air traffic controllers and operating amongst commercial aircraft. However a benefit of being in Wellington means we are only a short flight away from many other fantastic airfields for training, including Paraparaumu, Omaka (Blenheim) and Masterton which each offer training in uncontrolled airspace.
We have an excellent team of 4 full time instructors who offer professional flight training from ab-initio right through to a commercial licence. We will tailor your flight training programme around your specific goals and needs to help you achieve your licence as soon as possible.
