Default Flying in New Zealand

Hello
i wonder if any one can help me on this one. My family and I are considering moving to New Zealand and would like to know what the prospects are like for my husband to find a job flying (something such as crop spraying). He has his PPL, but would he have to sit a NZ qualification in order to fly.

I have searched the internet trying to get some information but to now avail. Also does anyone know of a good website or book that details the different areas of NZ. We are hoping to go out later this year and would like to concentrate a visit on the areas we are interested in. (Mainly the North Island)

ANY information would be great.

Thanks

Here in New Zealand I think it is referred to as 'top dressing'.

A quick search of the yellow pages revealed these sorts of companies doing the work you describe.

Why not contact those in the industry and see what they have to say.

Good luck.

CAA seem to administer pilot licensing:

Spotted this bit that might be relevant. Hope it makes sense.

http://www.caa.govt.nz/pilots/Flight...ition_Info.pdf

Recognition of agricultural and chemical ratings
For the issue of either a New Zealand Grade 1 or Grade 2 Agricultural Rating using an unrestricted equivalent rating issued by the Authority of an ICAO member state, each applicant will be required to:
1. Have been issued with either a NZ CPL or ATPL, and;
2. For Grade 2, meet the eligibility requirements contained in CA Rule 61.701 (a), or
3. For Grade 1, meet the eligibility requirement laid down in CA Rule 61.701(b) and;
4. Undertake a competency flight test in an agricultural aircraft with the holder of a current NZ Category E Flight Instructor Rating.

Notes:
• In order to facilitate the completion of a pre-training/test assessment of overseas agricultural qualifications and flight experience; pilot logbooks, course certificates and any other relevant information should be made available to the agricultural training organisation concerned. Should it be necessary, CAA will provide appropriate advice if so requested.
• Following satisfactory completion of the flight test, the Category E instructor concerned is required to enter a certification of competence in the applicant’s pilot logbook. Such certification must state whether Grade 1 or Grade 2 Agricultural Rating privileges may be exercised.
• In cases where a NZ Chemical Rating is not held, a logbook endorsement must be made by the instructor, stating that the pilot concerned may not dispense any agricultural chemical.
• Chemical Ratings or equivalent qualifications issued overseas are not recognised towards the issue of a NZ Chemical Rating.
• Persons who wish to qualify for a NZ Chemical Rating must meet the eligibility requirements laid down in CA Rule Part 61 and AC61-1.16.
