If you’re a pilot looking to up-skill and expand your aviation horizons, the Instrument Flight Rating (IR) is the solution you’ve been searching for. The IR rating enables you to fly under Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) as Pilot in Command, freeing you from the limits of visual navigation principles and many weather constraints. With an IR rating you can travel safely from one location to another by relying solely on your flight and navigation instruments, regardless of weather or lighting conditions.
Only 30 minutes north of Wellington City, Kāpiti Aero Club offers an exceptional base for you to achieve your IR rating.
Flight Test Requirements
To aid students in learning the IFR environment, we are very proud to offer an exceptional training experience with our very own Garmin G1000 Avionics Trainer, available for both VFR and IFR training.
We are pleased to announce a collaboration with Massey University School of Aviation for IFR training at Kāpiti Aero Club, which enables us to offer our students up to 20 hours of instrument time using Massey’s cutting-edge flight simulators. As a result, we can provide remarkably competitive rates for this training, reducing your costs.
Building on our strong partnership, we offer a streamlined pathway for our students to undertake the multi-engine phase of their Instrument Rating through Massey University School of Aviation. Following the completion of the single-engine IR component at Kāpiti, you can seamlessly transition to the multi-engine training stage utilising Massey’s state-of-the-art DA-42 aircraft and simulators at highly competitive rates. Conditions apply.

Our commitment to supporting every student to achieve their aviation goals is demonstrated by the results we have achieved with many students now exercising the instrument flying skills in many airlines and private pilots liberated from the confines of VFR flying.
Don’t wait any longer to take your flying abilities to the next level. Contact us today to learn more about our IFR training program or send an email to IFR@kapitiaeroclub.co.nz and we’ll get straight back to you..
