The Wanganui Aero Club was established in 1929 making us one of the first flight training establishments in New Zealand. We have over eighty years experience training recreational and commercial pilots.
We welcome you to join us and experience the thrill of flight here and Wanganui.
Flying as a Hobby
We offer professional training with fully qualified Flight Instructors towards you Private Pilots Licence (PPL). Once you have your PPL you can hire our aircraft and fly yourself and your family away for your next holiday! Our club also has a great social side with our members meeting regularly at the club rooms on Sunday afternoons. All are welcome to join us.
