Your Home for the Next One Year!


The New Zealand International Commercial Pilot Academy (NZICPA) has a strong history of successfully training professional pilots. It is professionally managed, has the best instructors, the highest quality of training, and is value for money.

The academy has been training New Zealand and international student pilots for a period in excess of 25 years.  It's graduates are employed by leading airlines in New Zealand, India, and throughout the Pacific, South East Asia and the Middle East. 

NZICPA is based in the New Zealand, North Island, West Coast city of Whanganui. Whanganui is regarded as one of New Zealand’s most interesting and distinctive places to visit with a rich cultural heritage and vibrant arts scene. The city is surrounded by mountains - Mount Taranaki, Mount Ruapehu and Mount Tongariro; a beautiful natural landscape, dramatic West Coast beaches and unspoilt native bush for hiking and wilderness trips. The region's vibrant, friendly and welcoming community prides itself on its parks and reserves, cycle and walk ways and an abundance of creativity. With a comparatively small population of 45,000 people, Whanganui is a safe and suitable place to study and learn.

The student accommodation is located on St.Johns Hill which overlooks the city of Whanganui, only 10 minutes from NZICPA and the Whanganui Airport.  The campus consists of 50 fully furnished rooms.  Each room has a new king single bed, chest of drawers, beside drawers, desk with roller chair, and wardrobe.  The complex is heated with a hot water radiator system and is warm and dry year-round to ensure trainee pilots are healthy and fit for flight duties. Ensuite rooms provides a large shower, toilet, basin and wall cabinet. 

The campus includes a commercial kitchen providing daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner, a large dining area and communal lounge space.   A laundry service for bedding is provided weekly and a self-service laundry is available for student’s personal items. 24 hour high speed wifi is available free of cost.

An on-site manager is available to assist with student welfare, discipline and generally making sure your son/daughter feels comfortable and happy during their stay in New Zealand.

Crew transport is provided to/from the Academy each day.
