What great fun u fly is. You are met by your pilot who gives you a brief of the plane and safety requirements then it's down to business. Your pilot takes off, gets you to a safe height and then hands the controls over to you. You are now flying. And you get to see Wanaka from a whole different... More

This is a must when traveling to Wanaka! You can see everything iconic in Wanaka from the sky. We did the the 20 minute flight and it was stunning- I didn't want to come down! We were able to fly over Mount Iron and Mount Roy and see all the way out to Mount Aspiring! The view of the Clutha... More

What a cool way to see Wanaka and get the chance to fly a plane! Was a tad nervous when first taking the controls but Byron made us feel really comfortable and it was a breeze. The plane holds 4 total so you get the chance to fly and bring two friends along to sit in the back seat. Such... More

What an awesome trip! I never thought I'd be able to do this in my life. We flew across the lake past Roy's Peak, then came back over Wanaka and towards the airport. I wasn't sure how much flying I would actually do, but I was in control the entire time! The staff are amazing, and Wanaka from the air... More

My partner and I flew, a bucket list item for him. I was able to accompany for no extra charge. The staff were so lovely, very personable and our instructor Ben was great. Call out to Kylie as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to try it these guys are the best and the views are gorgeous.

This was one of the most thrilling and fun activity in New Zealand. Not only I got the chance to be on a private plane ride overlooking the beauty of Wanaka, I got to fly it on my own, with a supervision of a certified pilot of course. I was basically in control of the plane right from the start,... More
