Nelson Aviation College
Training Beyond the Standard Nelson Aviation College was established at Motueka in 1978. We are a high profile training organisation with consistently high pass rates, giving us a highly regarded reputation worldwide. Nelson Aviation College has trained pilots for overseas airlines and internationally recognised companies, plus many individually enrolled students. Graduates from previous courses are employed by a number of aviation companies and airlines both within New Zealand and overseas. Nelson Aviation College is approved and accredited by the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA). Under the NZQA guidelines, Nelson Aviation College has developed a Diploma in Aviation programme which consists of full time training from ab-initio to Commercial Pilot Licence and Multi Engine Instrument Rating with an option of either a Frozen ATPL or an Instructor Rating. Our reputation has developed because the College is dedicated to the goal of seeing our students succeed as professional pilots. The pass rates achieved reflect the high standards set by Nelson Aviation College. We believe that our personalised approach assists trainees to attain both a high standard of flying skill and a professional attitude towards the aviation environment. Our emphasis on flight safety has never been more important. With thorough, effective training students will gain complete safety awareness as they develop their skills and knowledge.
