Welcome to the Marlborough Aero Club

The thrill of flight and magic of soaring across the sky was the inspiration for the group of aviation enthusiasts who established the Marlborough Aero Club in 1928 at Omaka Aerodrome. Since then we've trained hundreds of pilots many of which have ended up flying all manner of aircraft across New Zealand and the world. We are ideally located on our own airfield in sunny Blenheim, Marlborough. If you've dreamed of gaining your private or commercial pilot's licence, experiencing life from the sky, or gaining ratings, new skills or hiring aircraft for current PPL/CPL holders - we're here to help.
