Popular training aircraft

At most Clubs you will learn to fly in a medium powered, fixed undercarriage two or four seat GA aircraft.

Some Clubs teach in a Class 2 microlights. These aircraft are usually of metal or composite construction and can often preform as well or better than GA aircraft.

A GA pilot's licence and a Microlight pilot cretificate are different, with different training, examinations and medicals.

The privileges of the two licences are different and not totally transferable.

While there are a variety of training aircraft in New Zealand, the most common types are displayed here.

Most GA pilots, having obtained their PPL will become type rated in additional types.

Each aircraft type you fly requires a separate type rating entry in your log book.

To carry passengers in any type, you must have completed three take-offs and landings in the preceding 90 days
