Instructor Training Programme
The Gliding New Zealand Instructor needs to achieve and maintain proficiency in four key areas:
- Knowledge of the Pilot Training Programme (PTP), MOAP, GNZ Rules, CAA Rules
- Teach, instruct, coach and assess a trainee pilot’s knowledge and understanding
- Safely and effectively conduct airborne exercises (where approved to provide instruction)
- Manage gliding operations, including supervision of solo pilots, emergency procedures.
The Instructor Training Programme (ITP) consists of the following documents:
- Assessment Standards for Initial Issue and Category Upgrades
Instructor Assessment Standards (IAS)
- Form to Apply for an Instructor Rating or Upgrade
Form OPS-07 Page 1

- Form for Recording Exercises Approved to Teach
Form OPS-08 – applies to C-Cat and B-Cat ratings; use in conjunction with ISM
