Our camps are a unique opportunity to experience what a career in a technical or aviation field would be like. The programme is mostly hands-on and supported by serving Air Force personnel.
What you’ll get out of the programme:
+ Learn the basics of flight and how aircraft work.
+ Get hands-on experience fixing real aircraft and creating components.
+ Grow confidence in your choice of mathematics and science subjects at school and learn how to apply this knowledge in a real and exciting career pathway.
+ Plan a flight mission.
+ Develop your leadership and resilience skills during our specialist workshops.
+ Mix and mingle with other like-minded individuals from around New Zealand as well as our fantastic service personnel who were once just like you, looking to make a decision about their future.
+ Ask questions, hear stories and make like-minded friends and see if an aviation or technical career in an RNZAF aviation or technical role is for you.
Important note: We have no connection with Defence Careers/Recruiting and any application outcome will not influence an application into any Defence Careers. The aim of the camp is to assist in transitioning Year 13 Women into a STEM career pathway.

School to Skies is a Royal New Zealand Air Force initiative, originally developed in 2017, to address the low numbers of women in the male-dominated military workforce. Since then, it has grown into a broader diversity and inclusion programme. We deliver aviation science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) content across New Zealand - in schools, community programmes and targeted camps for women, under-represented ethnic groups and teachers. Our point of difference is our use of hands-on experiential learning and mentoring from serving personnel and influential industry leaders.
