“Training beyond the standard”
Nelson Aviation College has been training aeroplane pilots for the aviation industry since 1978. We provide the highest standard of theory and practical training in New Zealand, which can be customised to suit your career pathway or company requirements.

Consistently high pass rates of above 90% for first-time sittings and a maximum instructor to student ratio of 1:4 ensures safe, quality instruction throughout each phase of your training. Nelson Aviation College is 100% locally owned and operated. Our Instructors are experienced, dedicated and friendly. We know all of our students on a first-name basis.

Our two Bases (Nelson and Motueka) are within easy reach of two international airports and mountainous terrain, providing a diverse training environment. The Nelson region has some of the highest sunshine hours in New Zealand each year. We are also an Air New Zealand Aviation Institute FTO Partner. We can provide you with an Air New Zealand preferred pilot pathway programme (NZ Diploma in Aviation – Airline Preparation).

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
