Learning to fly is both easy and inexpensive when you come to the Auckland Recreational Flying Club, for around $3k most people can learn to fly solo in our aircraft and with a bit of study and further training can achieve the RAANZ Advanced Microlight Pilot Certificate which will allow you to fly all over the country.

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.
