Aviation-037 (1)-572-113
Date: 24-25 July 2017

Location: Distinction Hotel, Hamilton




Aviation New Zealand and MetService invited all 18 to 25-year-olds with an interest in aviation to apply


for two free Leadership Conference attendance packages. Every year, around 300 representatives of the


NZ aviation industry meet to learn about and discuss relevant industry matters.


The topic this year: “Improving Performance”.


We want to thank all applicants for their interest and effort. The applicant pool was outstanding and we
are happy to announce that we were able to choose two very motivated young people:

Claire Reweti, 25


Claire is currently mid-way through her multi engine rating training at Nelson Aviation College. She will


then be heading to Auckland for the Air New Zealand Integration Course before looking for a job in the


aviation industry. She explains her excitement for aviation coming from the rhythmic working of a lot of


people, involving a rapid advancement of technology. Claire thinks that her good eye for detail and analytic


skills will help her succeed in her future career in aviation.


Joshua Bywater, 20


Joshua Bywater is almost finished with his Bachelor of Aviation Management at Massey University. After


completing his degree he will be seeking a career in aviation as the global scale and unifying power of the


industry fascinate him. He sees himself as a good fit for the aviation industry as his problem solving skills


would be beneficial for an industry that is constantly faced with new challenges, including changing regulations,


competitions and environmental concerns.


Both of them will receive a scholarship valued at $1800 including


• Free two-day conference ticket including lunch

• Free three-night accommodation at a 4* star hotel

• Free Gala dinner attendance

• Free $300 travel voucher

• Free BauBax travel jacket with 15 features


As it was very hard to narrow down our choice, we also have decided to give a two-day conference ticket to four


other applicants. Tanja de Witt (Southern Wings), McKenzie Rayes (Nelson Aviation College), Joshua Collecutt


(Nelson Aviation College) and Sam Cubeles-Conway (Aerocare, Massey University) are invited to attend our


plenary and divisional sessions free of charge and get a glimpse into the NZ aviation industry.


We therefore are looking forward to seeing some fresh new faces at the conference!
