With the busy season about to start, our client needs Flight Instructor Guides to join their team.
This is a fantastic opportunity for qualified pilots to enjoy a range of flying whilst guiding visitors by air and providing flight instruction.
Based in beautiful Wanaka, our client offers scenic flights for visitors to experience the incredible mountains, lakes, and landscapes of the Queenstown Lakes Region. As part of the experience our visitors may wish to take the controls so you’ll be responsible for professionally instructing these visitors to pilot the aircraft. Along with hosting tourists to the area, our client offers quality flight instruction to trainee pilots in a number of different single engine aircraft. As part of this small friendly team you’ll have the opportunity to experience the excitement and challenges of mountain flying in a region known for its quickly changing weather.
We are seeking instructors for an initial six month contract with the potential to stay on year round. Experience guiding is not required however a great personality and passion for New Zealand will be advantageous. About Wanaka
Located in the stunning alps of the South Island in New Zealand, Wanaka is in close proximity to lakes, mountains and the Mount Aspiring National Park. Offering incredible natural beauty, the area offers a myriad of outdoor activities both summer and winter. The township offers stylish shops, bars and restaurants but unlike the tourist mecca of Queenstown (approximately an hour’s drive away), Wanaka still maintains its small town, relaxed and family friendly feel.
Aviation enthusiasts are wowed bi-annually at the world class Warbirds over Wanaka show and the Otago region hosts a number of international sporting events, art and music festivals. For families, Wanaka boast quality schooling. In addition to academic excellence, the schools offer world class outdoor programmes including skiing in winter from primary school through to a dedicated outdoor programme for High School Seniors.
