We’re NZAero. We design and hand-build aircraft that perform where others can’t, fly where others won’t, do what others don’t.

Our versatile yet specialised equipment enables pilots to operate (safely) in extreme environments and difficult terrain. Our aircraft are capable, durable and easy to maintain, for more productive hours in the air.

We manufacture our own parts and provide exceptional service support for a loyal global customer base who couldn’t imagine flying anything else.

We’re pleased you landed here!

What Sets Us Apart

Crafted to Endure

Rugged, Reliable and Unique.

We design, engineer and hand-craft exceptional aircraft and parts with unmatched durability. Premium materials are machined and hand-crafted by a highly skilled team of technicians. Our planes are built to go where others can’t, and perform reliably for decades.

Bespoke Service

People make the difference.

Of course, we use technology like CNC to ensure precision and accuracy. But it’s the skill of our technicians and their meticulous attention to detail that give NZAero the quality edge.

NZ’s Aviation Pioneers

New Zealand’s Aviation Innovators

Over 70 years we’ve clocked up some impressive firsts. We assembled the first dedicated agricultural aircraft, then designed an even better one. We developed the first aircraft able to lift more than it weighs. We gave the world the first XSTOL utility aircraft. We continue to innovate and push the boundaries of operational possibilities.

People say the nicest things! Thanks everyone, it means a lot.
