A beginner’s guide to taking off in Wellington

The following information can give you a sense of the commitment it takes to get your Private Pilots License. And after the PPL, well… the sky’s the limit!

How often should I fly?

We recommend you fly at least every two weeks.

There are some phases of training where it will benefit you to fly more frequently and also less frequently, but once every two weeks is generally about right.

We will help you tailor your training to your schedule and goals.

Are there any medical restrictions?

In order to hold a PPL you will need to pass a Class 2 aviation medical.

If you have any medical conditions that you think might impact your ability to fly, please contact us and we’ll talk your aspirations through with you.

How much does it cost?

Aircraft are charged out on an hourly rate and you only pay for the time when the engine is running.

 For all dual flights there is a fee for the instructor as well as landing and airways charges for all flight


How long does it take to get a PPL?

If you flew every day, you'd have your licence in 3 months.

Most people schedule their flying to match their lifestyle and work, and it usually take a year or so. How fast you do it is totally up to you.

Yes. There are 6 exams - radio, weather, aircraft technical knowledge, navigation, human factors and law. And a flight test to get your licence.

These exams and flight tests are administered for CAA in NZ by Aspeq.

Can I fly if I wear glasses?

That's fine! As long as your vision is corrected and you can pass a Class 2 aviation medical you're able to fly solo and hold a PPL.

If you have any other medical conditions that you think might impact your ability to fly, talk to us about it.

What can I do with a PPL?

You can take your friends and family flying around the country! You're not allowed to charge passengers, but they can contribute to the cost of hiring the aircraft.

You're not able to fly 'for hire or reward' - you need a Commercial Pilot Licence for that.
