The Flying NZ Flying Proficiency Scheme promotes air safety and encourages general aviation pilots to continue with valuable proficiency training, providing the opportunity to attain a sequence of Pilot Proficiency badges and certificates. Flying NZ is committed to continue to develop and support flying as a sport and recreational activity, encouraging personal achievement, fun and participation in a safe environment.
The objectives of the Flying NZ Pilot Proficiency scheme are:
To recognise and record defined levels of pilot experience.
To encourage the improvement of pilot skills.
To foster the continuation of flight training in a manner which will present a reasonable challenge to pilots of all experience levels.
To identify and bring within reach of all licensed pilots a sequence of recognised standards of achievement toward which their efforts for self-improvement may be directed.
To recognise gains in piloting skills through participation in other Flying NZ activities (competition, record flying etc).
