New Zealand Aviation offers flight training courses from a small aerodrome near Waharoa in the eastern Waikato. It engages mainly with international students and a few domestic students. The school provides courses in private pilot licences and commercial pilot licences along with training for the various pilot licence endorsements. Students gain the technical skills, attitudes and disciplines required for employment in the industry. The trainees and trainers are gaining necessary flight hours that contribute to the gaining of certification. The certification can lead to a vocation of one kind or another in the aviation industry. International students who complete the programme can apply in their home country to have the New Zealand license ‘converted’ for local use on their return.
