36 APAC / June 2017 , 1704AP13 The Land of the Long White Cloud Eagle Flight Training specialises in training international students to an advanced level as a pre-cursor to entry into the aviation industry. Here, we detail what NewZealand offers students who want to train as pilots and the stimulating courses we have on offer. Eagle Flight Training provides flight and ground training from basic private pilot license through to advanced commercial pilot license, including multi engine type rating, instrument rating, ATPL theory, multi crew co- ordination (MCC) courses and the New Zealand Diploma in Aviation. Our promise is that we will make you ready for every possible scenario in flight and build your automatic reactions as a pilot, while you are simultaneously flying an airplane, communicating with air traffic control and managing navigation equipment. Explore New Zealand Temperate and unspoiled New Zealand offers students unrivalled opportunities to learn and grow as a pilot in a diverse, challenging environment. New Zealand is in the southwest Pacific Ocean, 2000 km southeast of Australia, and is comprised of two main islands (the North and South Islands) and several smaller outlying islands. The indigenous Maori named New Zealand ‘Aotearoa’, commonly translated as ‘The Land of The Long White Cloud’. The population of about 4.3 million people is mainly of European descent (78%), with 14.6 New Zealand Maori, 9.2% Asian, and 6.9% Pacific Islanders. English is the main written and spoken language and Maori is an officially recognised language spoken fluently by over 4% of the population. A major feature of New Zealand is its pristine natural environment featuring majestic mountain ranges, sweeping plains, breath- taking fjords, imposing native forests, crystal clear inland lakes, and many miles of golden sand beaches. This diversity will add dimensions of adventure to your aviation training. New Zealand offers a temperate but variable climate that ensures New Zealand-trained pilots are proficient for flying in all weathers. Winter occurs from June to August and summer from December to February. New Zealand is a developed country that ranks highly in international comparisons on human development, quality of life, life expectancy, literacy, public education, lack of corruption and the protection of human rights. Its cities consistently rank among the world’s most liveable places. Auckland life Eagle Flight Training is in the southern part of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city and the centre of the country’s retail and commercial activities. Auckland is home to more than 1.3 million people and offers all the amenities you would expect of a major international city, plus easy access to spectacular beaches, islands, forests, and top-flight vineyards within half an hour of downtown. Most of Auckland’s residents (63%) are of European descent, while 13% are Pacific Islanders, 11% are New Zealand Maori, and 12% are Asian. English is the main written and spoken language. Maori, Polynesian and Asian languages are also spoken by ethnic communities. Sporting events are held every week and Auckland is counting down for its key role in the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Local arts and music events often have a strong Pacific flavour and you can also catch the best international acts in world-class venues. As the main international gateway to New Zealand for overseas visitors, Auckland is the most accessible to all regions by aircraft. It is also well served by buses, trains, and ferries that make the most of Auckland’s harbour-side location. Auckland’s temperate climate, easy coastal access, and variety of activities consistently earn the city top five rankings in international lifestyle surveys. Each year around 50,000 international students take advantage of the high-quality education and lifestyle offered in Auckland. Our airport Ardmore Airport is home to Eagle Flight Training and almost 100 other aviation businesses. Its world-class facilities, its proximity to Auckland City, and its superb climate make it the ideal base for flight training. Located only 33km south of the centre of Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city, Ardmore is the country’s busiest airport and provides the ideal environment for student pilots to learn and gain confidence. Ardmore Airport is New Zealand’s foremost aviation training centre – about 60% of all pilots trained in New Zealand are trained at here. Ardmore is home to more than 300 aircraft and offers one sealed and two grass runways, a fully equipped control tower, and near dozens of flying schools, flying clubs, charter services, and aviation support businesses. Established as an airbase for the US Air Force in 1943, Ardmore Airport is also the home base for about 40 historical ex-military aircraft affiliated to the New Zealand Warbirds Association.
