In New Zealand every type of aircraft you fly, you need a minimum 30 minute competency check flight with an instructor. The flight evolves all the basic and emergency procedures for that aircraft. Once the Pilot is deemed competent, it is signed off by the instructor in the pilots log book. Once your type rating has been signed off you are free to fly the aircraft with passengers, as long as you stay current with 3 take-offs and landings every 90 days. The average Type rating takes 1 - 1.5 hours to complete depending on the Pilots ability and experience.
Marlborough Aero Club has 6 aircraft to give type ratings on:
The M.A.C Instructors have experience in a variety of other aircraft. If you have an aircraft that you would like to be type rated in, get in contact with us and we can arrange to get it done for you.
Marlborough Aero Club is a fantastic place to experience and learn to fly tail wheel aircraft. We have 3 popular tail draggers, all priced at competitive rates. The average length of time for obtaining a tail wheel rating, is approx 5 hours of training. If you already have tail wheel experience the type rating may be shorter, depending on your ability and experience. Our main tail wheel trainer is the Cessna 172 tail-dragger, this is the ideal trainer with side by side seating, 160hp engine and a very forgiving under carriage. The C172 is the perfect step before getting into the bigger and more powerful Cessna 180 or getting into the smaller more sensitive Piper Cub.
The Tail Wheel Rating Syllabus:
Achieving a night rating allows you the advantage of flying after Evening Civil Twilight. Either for safety or a new challenge, a Night Rating is almost a must have. Night Ratings are normally achieved over the winter months when the Nights are earlier and longer. We train out of Woodbourne Airport with all the required lighting and the advantage of flying within controlled airspace at a quieter time. Night flying is a lot of fun and a great skill to have. Pilots are free to arrange to come out for a night flying experience, if they are not interested in doing a full rating.
Students must have at least 2 hours instrument flight time in aeroplanes including the following instrument flight manoeuvres before undertaking night flight training:
