Welcome to Nelson Aviation College
"Training Beyond the Standard"
 

Nelson Aviation College has been training pilots for the aviation industry since 1978.  

We are Preferred Air New Zealand Flight Training Organisation and we will provide you with an Air New Zealand Preferred Pilot Pathway - The New Zealand Diploma in Aviation, Airline Preparation Strand.

Due to our reputation and track record, NAC was again selected by the Tertiary Education Commission to offer student loans for flight training (conditions apply) in 2014.

Consistently high pass rates (currently 97% across all subject levels) for first time sittings and a maximum instructor to student ratio of 1:4 ensures safe, quality instruction throughout each phase of your training. 

Our Instructors are experienced, dedicated and friendly.  We know all of our students on a first name basis so you will never feel like "just a number".  

Trial flights are available to anyone who would like to experience the thrill and fun of flying for themselves

We look forward to meeting you soon.


Although we offer a professional training environment, one of our core values is to have fun.  Please take a look at this new video to see where we fly.
