In August 2014 we opened our second base at Ardmore Airport in Auckland. The renowned courses on offer in Invercargill are replicated in Auckland so you can be assured of a high quality platform to launch your aviation career. We operate our Auckland and Invercargill bases as one operation and our students get the best of flying in both environments, gives our students a huge advantage in becoming an employable pilot.

Flight training at our Ardmore base provides busy airspace, city flying, not to mention, it’s a great place for a plane spotter, especially if you love Warbirds and small jets. Ardmore’s location offers short flying times to the North Island’s gems like the Coromandel, Tauranga, Rotorua, the Bay of Islands, Taupo and the Bay of Plenty. As part of your training you will also experience flying out of our Invercargill base to obtain the latter half of your Instrument Rating and complete your Mountain Flying requirements.

Fully qualified and trained instructors, personalised service with deliberately small class sizes, and both practical and theory qualifications that are highly valued by those in the aviation industry are all features you’ll enjoy when you land a place with Southern Wings. Our Auckland flight school facilities include two classrooms, a flight planning room, a simulator room and there is also an excellent café onsite with airside tables to assist with plane spotting whilst you enjoy a coffee.
