There are three tiers of PreFlight:
Free – Access is free for all NZ aviators operating for non-commercial purposes.
Plus – Monthly subscription that provides additional features for individual, non-commercial use.
Pro – Subscription based service for aircraft operators engaged in commercial operations (including scheduled and unscheduled air transport operations) in New Zealand, and also flight training organisations, who are conducting flights at or below 10,000 ft. This includes commercial flight training organisations, flying clubs or aero clubs providing flight training. Commercial operators conducting flights above 10,000 ft may subscribe to MetJet.
