For over 80 years Waikato Aviation has offered training courses for those with a passion for aviation: from aspiring pilots to those with a desire to explore skies with friends, family and for business. Students are acquiring new and useful skills and knowledge as a result of their flying training with Waikato Aviation. Knowledge gained is not only from the courses and unit standards completed, but also from the extensive, up-to-date sector knowledge and expert opinion that the staff share with learners to contextualise their learning. Instruction is delivered by experienced ground and flight instructors who are well trained and managed to ensure the training is relevant and effective. Waikato Aviation provides training at Hamilton International Airport with the full range of facilities with both grass and asphalt runways as well as full air traffic control and airport services.
