Aviation Studies


We are the third secondary school in New Zealand to offer the National Certificate in Aviation and are the only secondary school that offers glider flight training as part of its practical aircraft operations component.

The flight training consists of glider ground handling; winch launch procedures; aero tow procedures and flying a glider solo.

The component is being taught and assessed by qualified instructors at the Gliding Wairarapa site at Papawai, Greytown.
