Highlights of 2020



Fill out the application form

Covid-19 had a major impact on Aviation NZ and member operations during the year.  We changed the way we operated, did not invoice existing members for 2020/21 subscriptions and ran a minimum cost budget.  Our work continued but with three new imperatives from 1 April:

Immediate: Member viability.  Looking at ways we could help members reduce costs, through the Government’s Aviation Package or other ways. 

Short term: Keeping members operating.  Ensuring members are ready for the recovery and removing constraints on GA created by the Covid-19 alert levels, especially on agriculture, engineering, MRO and parts supply, and pilot and instructor currency.

Medium term: Kickstarting the economy through aviation.  Identifying aviation projects and activities that can start as the country or regions move from Covid-19 level 4.
