Want to see the Wanaka lake and river from the top? It’s amazing. And you can bring your friend or family with you for free so both of you can enjoy the beautiful views with less cost. 教练人非常好,讲解生动,英语不好也不用担心,都是很基本的交流,很容易哒。:)

I have a UK private pilot's licence and wanted the chance to fly in NZ. The guys gave me an hour long introduction to mountain and valley flying. Truly incredible flying that far exceeded my expectations! Great, friendly, helpful team - thank you!
