About Us


HIBS Aviation was founded in Febuary 2000. And is now in it’s 15th successful year, producing some of New Zealand’s youngest Pilots.

The students are taught general aviation standards and the PPL theory course during class time at HIBS.

Once they reach the required age they will begin flight training every Wednesday afternoon with our partner Kapiti Aero Club, at Paraparaumu Airpot.

There are two course options for beginning pilots:

• The two-year National Certificate in Aviation Course  (Year 11) or

• The one-year PPL course starting in year 12 or year 13.
