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: $420 (provisional – may be changed) with deposit of $120. Plus additional flying costs up to a maximum of $250.

Next School:  April 2022 (School Holidays)

Open to Scouts aged 12+ years.

Applications for next year’s school will be open at a later date.
