Sport Aircraft - Build and fly with SAANZ
SAA will support you through every aspect of choosing, building, testing and flying your chosen aircraft.
We work closely with the NZ Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to ensure that legislation is supportive to our members' needs. Our goal is to achieve the greatest freedom of creativity without compromise to safety.
Sport Aircraft Association NZ Inc is a very active organisation. We have a diverse membership of well over 500 keen aircraft builders and fliers.
Building and more
Most areas have Chapters whose members meet regularly for discussions and visits to each other's aircraft building projects. The visits are an opportunity for sharing the great wealth of knowledge accumulated by those who have built or are building their own aircraft.
Advice is freely given and assistance for your own project is never further than a phone call away.
Flying - the ultimate
Our members enjoy flying a vast array of aircraft, from Jodels to RVs, self-designed one-offs to the tiny Cri-Cri. Our pilots range in experience from newly trained and licensed novices through to seasoned airline pilots.
Whether flying solo or with family and friends as passengers, on long flights or short, we all share a passion for sport flying. "Fly-ins" are a great opportunity to socialise with like-minded enthusiasts as well as flying your aircraft.
