FLYING NZ MICROLIGHTSLearn to fly at your local aero club.

Welcome to Flying NZ Microlights

Flying NZ continues to develop and support recreational flying. Part of this process is by introducing new ideas and a more inclusive approach to recreational aviation groups.

We are working to assist our member clubs in their sport and recreational activities including incorporating more Microlight aircraft.

We have experienced members of the Executive that are available to advise clubs on how to manage new ideas, facilitate change and most importantly improve Risk Management.

Aero Club flying, no matter the aircraft type or age of the pilot is for sport and recreation, personal achievement, fun and most importantly of all, flying in a safe environment.

If you are a Microlight Pilot, or someone who would like to learn to fly Microlights, or just looking for the next new challenge join your local Flying NZ Aero Club and live to fly.
Flying Microlights has changed
Performance wise, a modern Microlight is more like a GA aircraft than ever before. To be safe it requires the same level of pilot skill and maintenance as a traditional GA aircraft. That’s our background, our skill set and what we are good at.

Flying NZ - Part 149
Flying NZ was issued with a Part 149 Certificate in 2006 allowing us to train and issue pilot certificates for Microlights. The CAA wanted Flying NZ to provide a more consistent baseline in terms of Microlight Flight Training.
