Pilot Proficiency

The Flying NZ Proficiency Scheme promotes air safety and encourages general aviation and microlight pilots to continue with valuable proficiency training, providing the opportunity to attain a sequence of Pilot Proficiency badges, logbook stickers and certificates. Flying NZ is committed to continue to develop and support flying as a sport and recreational activity, encouraging personal achievement, fun and participation in a safe environment.
The awards are supported by our major industry partners, Avsure, Aspec, Airways and CAA.
The objectives of the Flying NZ Pilot Proficiency scheme are:

  • To recognise and record defined levels of pilot experience.
  • To encourage the improvement of pilot skills.
  • To foster the continuation of flight training in a manner which will present a reasonable challenge to pilots of all experience levels.
  • To identify and bring within reach of all licensed pilots a sequence of recognised standards of achievement toward which their efforts for self-improvement may be directed.
  • To recognise gains in piloting skills through participation in other Flying NZ activities (competition, record flying etc).

AVSURE recognises the culture of continuing skill development within individual clubs shown through pilot proficiency uptake rate. This will be rewarded on a by club basis and used for insurance risk assessment at premium time.
CAA recognise pilot proficiency as a continuing skill development process and will file a gold level certificate in pilots file when achieved.
