Information For Students
So you have chosen to study aviation in New Zealand. Read through this section to find out what you need to know as an international student…
Ardmore Flying School requires all overseas students arrive 4 days prior to the start of their course. Once you arrive, we organise your collection from the Auckland International Airport and you will be delivered to your accommodation. During this initial 4-day period, students will go through orientation at the school and meet instructors and other students. As part of the orientation, you will be made familiar with Ardmore Airport and its operational procedures.
Our enrolments team can also assist you to settle into New Zealand by for example helping you open a bank account in Papakura, organise the purchase of your aeronautical equipment, maps and CAA stationary.
At this time we will discuss any personal needs you may have and your training requirements.
If your previous flying experience was, in full or in part, obtained while enrolled in a CAA approved or recognized course and you desire to qualify for full credit, please make sure that you are able to make your logbook available for inspection by either Ardmore Flying School or the New Zealand CAA and/or that you obtain a record (transcript) of training from the school you attended. Final credit awarded will be based upon a review of logged pilot time and demonstrated flight proficiency as evaluated by the Chief Flying Instructor when you commence training at Ardmore Flying School.
