Wanganui Aero Club

The Wanganui Aero Club was established in 1929 and was one of the first flight training establishments in New Zealand.

The Club has been training recreational and commercial pilots for over seventy five years. 
Based at the Wanganui Airport, the club is operating at an uncontrolled airport with minimal congestion, which means you waste less time on the ground holding for other aircraft and more time flying. 
The Club offers training from introductory flight training through to commercial licence and instructor ratings. 
There are also a wide range of club trips and competitions to participate in.

Flying is not as expensive as you may first think, Wanganui Aero Club offers some of the best aircraft training rates in the country.

Our aircraft is charged out at an hourly rate. Dual training is with an instructor on board, and Solo hire is when you are flying by yourself.
We believe giving you a clear idea of the cost will avoid any surprises down the line
