Flying Club offering aviation minded folks social and participation involvement in their chosen hobby.

Here at the Tauranga Aero Club we can provide you with the flight experience of a life time, from your first introductory flight lesson through to a magical scenic flight that you will remember for a long time. Located at Tauranga in the spectacular Bay of Plenty we have it all, superb scenery, magical seascapes, steaming volcanoes, pristine beaches and a favorable climate and environment for flight training.

Flight Training

The core activity of the Tauranga Aero Club is flight training of student and professional pilots towards their Private Pilot Licence, Commercial Pilot Licence, and Instructor Rating, as well as type ratings and Biennial Flight Reviews. Through our partnership with Sunair Aviation we also train pilots towards their Instrument Rating and First Conversion to Multi Engine Type. The club employs a dedicated team of full time, professional flying instructors and operates a small fleet of training aircraft.

Air transport charter flights can be arranged to any location in New Zealand. We have four and six seat aircraft available, supplied with a pilot. All Air Transport flights are operated by Sunair Aviation. Contact us to find out more.
