What they say about Airshare Training...
Drone 101 is an excellent resource and should be on every drone operator’s shelf. The interactive book makes it an enjoyable read. You can test your knowledge at each section making it easier to remember important safety features. I highly recommend it. Read Maria’s full review.

Note, the Drone 101 airBook includes details of your drone flying obligations under Civil Aviation Rules Part 101 and 102 but flying drones in New Zealand requires you to comply with laws (including local council bylaws) in addition to those Rule Parts that are not included in this airBook. As the Drone 101 airBook does not include details of those additional laws, in order to fly your drone safely and legally you will need to ensure that you understand and comply with any such additional laws.
