Are you a female who has an interest in maths and/or science? New Zealand needs more women in the aviation industry as Engineers, Technicians, Pilots and more! You have more choices than you probably realise.
Could aviation be the perfect future for you? We're giving 24 lucky students a chance to spend four and half days at RNZAF Base Auckland to find out, and it's FREE!
Aviation offers something for everyone, whether you want to spend your days in the skies or keep your feet firmly planted on the ground! Our “School to Skies” Programme is a Tech and Aviation Camp that will give you the chance to try before you buy. Applications are open to girls in Years 12 and 13 who live in the Auckland region and are currently studying maths and/or science-related subjects
What does the programme involve?
This hands-on programme is a unique opportunity to experience what a career in a technical or aviation field would be like. What you'll get out of the programme:
