FAI Sporting Licences

It is a requirement for record and overseas competition flights that the pilot-in-command be the holder of a Sporting Licence issued by the National Aerosport Control (NAC).  In New Zealand this is the Royal New Zealand Aero Club (RNZAC) Inc.  A current member of GNZ is deemed to hold a Sporting Licence for flights within New Zealand.  The member’s GNZ Central Register number should be quoted in situations where the Sporting Licence number is required.

Pilots requiring a Sporting Licence issued by the RNZAC should apply online here:

Pilots should note that their Sporting Licence will not be recognised as valid until the FAI has entered the details on its central database upon receipt from the RNZAC.
