MFNZ Wings – Proficiency in Flight

Model Flying New Zealand Wings is a proficiency program ensuring our members are competent and safe!

Wings is broken down into 11 disciplines, 6 basic and 5 advanced, and 4 specialist endorsements, as well as Observer Training. Our Wings program is accepted by the Civil Aviation Authority as the qualification needed to operate within 4km of an aerodrome as per CAR101.205

Wings is only valid for recreational use, commercial use of the qualification is strictly forbidden and invalidates its use as well as jeopardising membership.

The qualification will be valid for a 5 year period (phased in from 2025) and is composed of both theory and flight test, administered by Model Flying New Zealand Wings Examiners.
