What comes to mind when one mentions about scenic beauty is the paradise on Earth – New Zealand. But never has it crossed our minds that this small country in the Southern hemisphere has anything to do with aviation.
Did you say Aviation? Yes, that’s correct. New Zealand has been the pioneers in the field of aviation. You would be surprised to know that the first powered flight took place in New Zealand in 1903 few months before the Wright Brothers took to flying. Richard William Pearse flew a machine which resembled close to the modern day aeroplanes with under-carriage and ailerons.
New Zealand today has more than 1000 companies exporting in surplus of US$ 3Billion in aviation products to all around the globe varying from supply of parts to large aircraft manufactures, painting technology, flight display systems, flight management systems, risk & safety management, airport designing, baggage handling systems and the list goes on..
Flight Training has been one of the major functions in New Zealand were many of the Kiwis know to fly. This is proved by the fact that the first pilot training school was established in the year 1916. Since then there has been many schools established in New Zealand training pilots for the global aviation industry. New Zealand trained pilots are much sought after given the training conditions they are exposed to and the quality of training. NZ weather and terrain help in the all round development of a pilot.
The New Zealand government sponsored Education Fair is happening in Colombo on the 9th of Sep 2012 at Taj Samudra Hotel. Guess what, one of the largest and oldest flying school of New Zealand – The International Aviation Academy of New Zealand (IAANZ) is participating in this.
This academy was established in the year 1928 and has been training several pilots than any other flight training provider in NZ. This academy is unique that it operates from a fully functional International Airport in Christchurch, NZ.

Being based in the International Airport students are exposed to an airline environment from their very first flight. Moreover the academy has its own airfield 5 minutes from the International airport for the exclusive use of its students.
Their in-house Engineering and maintenance department ensures that all of their 36 aircrafts are in perfect flying condition.
The academy employs 30 Instructors with combined experience of over 50,000 hours of instructional training alone. The friendly admin and pastoral care team ensure that all the international students from several countries are comfortable and the visa needs addressed on time.
