Sunair Aviation Ltd is privately owned by Dan & Bev Power and has enjoyed a safe operating history spanning 31 years,something we are all very proud of. Initially starting as a commuter operator to Motiti Island in the Bay of Plenty with one aircraft, we now operate a fleet of nine twin engine aeroplanes, in New Zealand.
Sunair is a fully licensed Regional Air Transport Operator between 9 provincial Cities. These aircraft operate on scheduled services and charters. As is the case with all airlines including the likes of Air New Zealand Ltd, we are fully audited every year, by the New Zealand Civil Aviation Authority, on matters of safety and maintenance.
Safety is Important
In addition the company has its own quality assurance system with a dedicated quality auditor providing formal internal audits and spot checks. A highly qualified chief pilot fills the executive role of Flight Operations Manager, and monitors the day to day operation to ensure high standards are complied with at all times.
Pilots are only accepted for passenger flights if they first meet stringent requirements, and then undertake further extensive in-house training and pass examinations to a high level.
We have our own maintenance workshop at Tauranga. A licensed aircraft maintenance engineer with 35 years engineering experience fills the role of Maintenance Controller to exacting standards set and monitored by the CAA. We are fortunate this person is also an authorised airworthiness inspector who ensures a formal maintenance programme is adhered to, including set interval checks on every aircraft.
The work of these two senior managers is then subject to the Q.A Manager’s monitoring and management review.
