Locations and availability

I am based in Wellington but travel around New Zealand.
I visit Queenstown, Wanaka, Christchurch and Palmerston North on a monthly basis. Where the calendar is green I am available for appointments and you can easily book online.
Other trips can be arranged – please contact me on 021 246 5940 or email
For current pilots if your medical expires before I am due to visit your area please contact me regarding an extension to your current medical. This needs to be done before the expiry date on your current medical.
