We can provide Aerobatic, Tail-wheel and Strip Training. We also offer Biennial Flight Reviews (BFR). 

The Wanganui Aero Club offers an in-formal, pay as you go style of training, which means anyone can learn to fly. Students can choose when they fly and can pay after each flight. Our training is done to suit each student individually, and make it conform to the student's lifestyle.
