Air Law




2.5 Weeks

About the Course

How old do I have to be to fly an aircraft solo? When am I able to take my family flying with me? How far from the cloud do I have to fly?

We will give you the answers to all these questions and many more on our PPL Air Law ground course.

Rules and regulations are designed to help keep us safe in the skies. You will learn where our laws come from and how to access, accurately interpret them and apply them to everyday flying.

Once you have your PPL, many more doors open up for you. Different aircraft type ratings, aerobatic ratings and glider/banner towing ratings are just some of your options.

How do you go about achieving these? This is all covered in the law also, let us show you where!

Daniel Stuckey

I am Daniel, originally from England moved to New Zealand as a child that grew up in Porirua, Wellington. I got into aviation when I was in Scouts, I went to the Walsh Memorial Scout Flying School in 2019 as an ab initio and fell in love.

In my past I did sailing for a few years as a teenager, sailing Starlings in a few regattas and competitions. I have done a lot of camping around the lower north island, and a few hikes around the Tararuas, Nelson lakes and Abel Tasman.
My recent hobbies in Wanaka have been attempting a few trails around Sticky Forest, and saving up to buy a motorcycle. In the winter I will be trying my best to go skiing at the ski fields. When the weather isn't good I will be listening to music or watching movies.
