Simavia grew out of the experiences of twenty years in the airline business. Recognising the need for new and innovative training packages, we set about designing specific training modules to meet the challenges of the modern airline training environment. In particular, we have addressed the requirement for Jet Orientation, which significantly reduces training loads when undergoing initial type training; and Aviation English, which prepares pilots, who do not have English as their first language, for the challenging Air Traffic Control environment where English is normally the primary language.

All our aviation courses are taught by pilots with an airline check and training background, and our Aviation English courses are taught by qualified ESL (English as a Second Language) instructors.

We are based in Auckland, New Zealand. The area has good beaches, a fantastic harbour, and a host of leisure activities, with mountains and lakes only a few hours away. See our FAQ for more information on local facilities.

Our mission is to help pilots aiming for an airline career to realise their dream, by preparing them for the difficult task of learning to operate a modern airliner - much more than just handling the simulator.

 We can also be of great help to airlines, by preparing their new hires and minimising training risk. With our help, sim instructors can be released to concentrate on the flying sytllabus without having to teach CRM, panel familiarisation and other general procedures, thus saving money and time.
