Studying in the Pacific Islands – NZ Courses

For over 10 years, many pilots based in the Pacific Islands, from multiple airlines, have studied with us at ATPLOnline.co.nz .

All you need to study with us is a computer or tablet and good internet access. We offer some special rates to pilots in the Pacific Islands. If you would like to start studying – contact us today and we will help you get started. Our details are at the bottom of this page.

If you are a pilot from any Pacific Island, we are happy to assist you in completing your New Zealand Private Pilot Licence (PPL), Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL), Instrument Rating (IR) and Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL) theory subjects. There are several options which you can choose from to get started with us – we discuss these on this page.


Becoming a Pilot – Pacific Islands (including Tonga, Cook Islands, Vanuatu, Fiji, Samoa)

We do not provide specific advice on becoming a pilot if you are based in the Pacific Islands. We provide New Zealand aviation theory courses (not practical flight training) to anyone wishing to gain their New Zealand pilot licences. 

Some Pacific Islands may recognise a New Zealand Private Pilot Licence (PPL), Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL), Instrument Rating (IR) and Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL). Other Pacific Islands may permit the conversion of a New Zealand Pilot licence to their own regulatory pilot licence system. 

It is common for some student pilots to study the New Zealand pilot licence programme, then when they gain their CPL, transfer this (under the local licence conversion process) to their home country’s pilot licence. This may require completing the practical (in aircraft) training programme in New Zealand.

Before commencing any aviation training programme, make sure you are fully aware of the requirements for your home country.

Our online aviation theory courses – which are designed to meet the New Zealand pilot training syllabus, are a great choice if;
