The Wanganui Aero Club was established in 1929 and was one of the first flight training establishments in New Zealand. We have over eighty years experience training recreational and commercial pilots.

Based at the Wanganui Airport, the club is operating at an uncontrolled airport with minimal congestion, which means you waste less time on the ground holding for other aircraft and more time flying. Its central location makes it easy to reach a lot of New Zealand by air.

The club has a very active social scene. We have regular 'fly away' trips to locations all around New Zealand, weekly get-togethers at our club rooms in Wanganui and participate widely in local and national sports and aviation competitions.
