Aviation School

aviation school

The Aviation School, for Scouts over 12, is run every year and gives attendees the chance to both fly a plane, and learn about the aviation industry. It gives attendees a unique insight into the basics of flight and is a useful stepping stone for those interested in all aspects of aviation.

Our National Aviation School is run by real pilots and real engineers … and you get to fly with just you and an instructor!  Based in Manawatu, young people enjoy a week of learning and hands-on tasks – including flying an aircraft with the opportunity of further flying in a microlight and glider. 

Cost: Approx. $450 – $480 (including the deposit of $120.) Plus additional flying costs up to a maximum of $250.

Next School: The next Aviation School will be held 9th – 16th April 2023 (first week of the School Holidays).

Open to Scouts aged 12+ years.

Applications: Registrations for Aviation School 2023 will open in mid-February, please keep an eye on this page for updates. Successful applications from the 2022 School will be cross referenced with applications for the 2023 School and those will be given priority. But all students must reapply once registration opens.
