Microlight flying in New Zealand is conducted under part 149 of the Civil Aviation Rules. Flying New Zealand has been certified by the Civil Aviation Authority to issue microlight pilot and instructor certificates.
Flying NZ-affiliated clubs who wish to provide microlight instruction should contact the Executive Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the first instance and we will arrange approval for you to do this.
People wanting to learn to fly in microlight aircraft should contact their Flying NZ club to confirm they are able to conduct this instruction and issue microlight pilot certificates (you may also want to see the advantages of flying certified aircraft also).
The following links are to our Exposition (our agreement with the Civil Aviation Authority about how we will conduct our microlight operations), approval certificate and the various application forms.
SAFETY SAFETY REPORTING
If you have an accident or incident or see a safety risk while operating your microlight, please let your Club instructors know, so they can manage any risks.
Please also report (or ask your instructor to report) the issue through the Flying NZ safety system, so we can proactively monitor risks, issues and trends.
All reports will be looked at by Flying NZ to help improve the safety and enjoyment of our operations.
Flying NZ practices Just Culture and does not seek to blame individuals. We want to understand what occurred, why it occurred and to prevent it from occurring in the future. We welcome your feedback on how we can improve the services we offer you.
