think Aviation

On this page, find out more about AOPA NZ’s new charitable trust – Think Aviation – which we are in the process for formally setting up during late 2023 and early 2024.

There are three videos you can watch below. One about the trust, and then two short video interviews with young people who have stepped into the aviation industry: Nick, an engineer and Allie, who specialises in avionics.

Here’s a quick video interview with Nick about being an engineer working on fixed wing aircraft.

And here’s an interview with Allie about her role as an avionics engineer.

We’d really like to hear from you if any of the following apply:

  • You’re considering aviation as a career but want to know more (about flying, engineer jobs, and more)
  • You are already a pilot but need some support
  • You’re interested in further pilot education
  • You love aviation but don’t know how to get “into it”

Need more information? Feel free to get in touch with us for the time being on
