If you want the right to be part of New Zealand’s aviation system, you have to prove you’re sufficiently sensible, careful, and law-abiding to be allowed that right.
Complete the fit and proper person questionnaire, providing:
It will take a minimum of four weeks to get the MOJ report (free), but a paid report can be sourced from Veritas Check New Zealand(external link).
Your application can’t be processed unless you use the right forms and provide the right information.
A shorter fit and proper person declaration can be used if:

Refer to Section 9(3) of the Civil Aviation Act 1990, which states that every aviation document holder must "continue to satisfy the fit and proper person test".
Aircraft owners must declare they're fit and proper. This is done within the application forms for initial registration and change of possession of an aircraft.
To make the fit and proper person process transparent and fair to participants, we have published a fit and proper person policy, and handbook.
