Access is through two fields: Username and Password.

Username

For CAA Licensed (Part 61) pilots, the username is their pilot licence number. For pilots who are a member of a Part 149 Aviation Recreation Organisation, it is their membership or pilot certificate number, but with a prefix in front of the membership number.

The Gliding New Zealand prefix is 'GNZ', the New Zealand Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association prefix is 'HP', the Recreational Aircraft Association of New Zealand prefix is 'R', and the Sport Aviation Corporation prefix is 'S'.

Password

For CAA Part 61 pilots, the password is the Initial Grant date of their licence (lower right hand side of the licence) but input in the form d/mm/yyyy, ie, with no leading zero on the day but with a leading zero on the month (eg, 5/12/2003 or 21/01/1991).

Note: The "Initial Grant Date" will change if a pilot progresses from PPL to CPL or to ATPL, or gains a RPL. The latest Initial Grant date will generally be recognised by the MetFlight system. If a pilot holds both fixed wing and rotary licenses, the latest Initial Grant date will be recognised by the system.

For Part 149 pilots, the password will differ between organisations. Some will use issue or birth dates, while other organisations will generate passwords specifically for MetFlight-GA. Part 149 Aviation Recreation Organisations will notify members of their Username and Password information.
