​Every pilot starts in a light aircraft

Aviation is diverse.

Whether you want to join an airline, or fly warbirds, or fly yourself, whānau and friends around in the hydrogen or electric future, you need to start.

The former-RNZAF Strikemaster and its pilot (pictured above) is a member of Wellington Aero Club and an honoured visitor to Wellington Airport. Before you can fly aircraft types like this one — and many others! — you need to start a little smaller.

WAC has what you need to start your recreational or professional career…

Piper Tomahawk PA38

Our beloved and stalwart training aircraft…

  • 2 seats
  • Fitted with dual controls for training

  • 112hp engines
  • Respectable 90kts (166km/hr) cruise

Sometimes our three Tomahawks are joined by others to ensure we always have a capacity to match the needs of our students and pilot members.
