You will start out with a Novice Certificate, this allows you to learn to fly with an instructor, and do your first solo flights around the airfield circuit. Once you have got the hang of the basics, you will sit some multiple-choice answer exams for which you will have studied our comprehensive training materials and been tutored on by your instructor. When you've passed the exams it's time for a flight test – and when you pass that, you will be awarded your Intermediate Certificate

Intermediate Certificate you'll be able to go flying around “the local area” (within 10 nautical miles of the airfield) on your own, that's when you have some spare time in between doing your basic “Cross Country” training with your instructor, you will conduct several cross countries both with your instructor and on your own. When you have to required hours under your belt, and pass another flight test, you will be awarded an Advanced Local Certificate

Most people use the Advanced Local to conduct “Long Cross Country” training with their Instructor and on their own, once you have completed some more hours (by now your log book will have a few pages filled out) you will be awarded with an “Advanced National Certificate”,

Advanced National Certificate , which allows you to fly from Cape Reinga to Bluff if you want to do that!
