The Wanganui Aero Club was established in 1929 and was one of the first Commercial Flight Training establishments in Australasia. We have over eighty years experience training recreational and commercial pilots.

Although not a 'Flight School' any more, we still provide professional flight training for Recreational to Commercial Pilot Licences and further on a in-formal pay as you go basis. 

Based at the Wanganui Airport, the Wanganui Aero 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 Wanganui Aero 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 as well as aviation competitions.
