It was an experience I always wanted. 20 years ago I flew light planes out of Hamilton. The basic controls of an aeroplane are explained and then it is into the cockpit. The first surprise is it is quite compact . The co-pilot instructor took me through the prestart setup, fascinating. Once the engines were started and up to speed... More

When my wife bought me a Flyajet voucher for Christmas it was an excuse for a special weekend in Auckland. Saw Roy on TV tonight demonstrating cockpit doors and remembered to file this review. My hour went fast but Roy covered so much in that time in the briefing and the realistic cockpit. I believe we wiped out half the... More

I cant thank Alister, Roy and Peter enough, to squeeze me a time in while on a very hectic holiday in NZ. Once there, i was blown away by the office and being a plane nerd it was awesome.. The pre flight briefing was great with Alister explaining everything in detail. The cockpit of the 737 is unfaulteringly real and... More

Was given this adventure for my 60th birthday. Being somewhat "nervous" about flying, I was put at ease within a matter of moments and thoroughly enjoyed the whole affair. Only downside was that I wish it had been longer !!! Looking forward to my next one :)

As I had a spare morning in Auckland with my 10 year old son , we were told of this place by a friend who had heard of it. I had also seen their ad on TV. To be honest, I thought it'd be a lot of expense for an 'Easter Show-like ' attraction. We were sooooo wrong. It was... More
