Thanks Trevor for the wonderful flight over Wanaka and surrounds. The area is picture perfect but made more so interesting with your detailed knowledge of the area and accommodating manner with respect to showing us the sights. We would highly recommend your company to family and friends. Cheers till next time.

“Relaxed flying lesson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Having previously flown a stunt plane today I thought I’d have a chilled day, and just take a nice scenic flight with maybe a little flying. Trevor came and picked me up from my hostel at no extra cost and then ran me back. He was extremely friendly and a great instructor. This plane was slightly different and the windy did make it very bumpy at times as I was not expecting it. Again I got the DVD, and was great to see me fly and what I was seeing, I also had chance to get some of my own photos to shown what Wanaka looked like from above. I loved learning to take of and land. Again another genuine person who made the flight my own and was keen to show his passion for the job.
