NO!!!!! The NZ rules have their own variations and peculiarities introduced when they adopted them. E.g. Check out the requirements in the NZ rules part 61.807 and compare them to the FAA rule 61.57. Which would cost more to keep an instrument rating current. There are many other changes, the devil is in the detail.

While the NZ rules would be a big step up from the dross CASA dish out if we are going to go to the effort of changing we should do it once and adopt the FAA ones with as little modification as necessary. Harmonizing regionally will lead to a substandard outcome.
