So what’s next?
Once you have decided that you want to learn to fly, you will need to have your GP complete a Medical Certificate for you, and you will also need to complete a Fit & Proper Person Declaration. Take the completed forms to your instructor (at your next lesson). Your Instructor will then arrange for a Microlight Pilots License to be issued by RAANZ (Recreational Aircraft Association of New Zealand). At this stage you will need to join the club (current subscription is $70 per year, and joining fee $30) and also RAANZ (annual subscription – $80). You will also need to purchase a Pilots Logbook to record your progress.
