Amazing experience. It's a "must" if you are around on the south island.Vincent and Alison are great and will make you feel comfortable from the beginning. Don't thing twice about doing it or not.....just do it, you will not regret it.

If you are in New Zealand, you definitely need to do this ! Vincent and Alison will do everything they can to make you feel at ease, it is such a personalised experience - highly doubt you can do this anywhere else !! Flying your own stunt plane and doing loops in the air - no words to describe it... More

Vincent and Alison were fantastic. They make you feel very comfortable when you arrive at their hangar. Whether you have zero experience in aviation or have been around it for a long time this acrobatic flight is something dreams are made of. Vincent is very intuitive when it comes to determining what you are capable of doing. My only recommendation... More

Vincent was awesome. The flight was amazing. Words don't do the experience justice. 5 stars isn't even a fair rating. It was above and beyond my expectation. It deserves its own scale! This was a 10! One of the best 20 minutes of my life! I can't wait to go back and do it again!

I got to fly the plane. Not just any plane, it was an open cockpit, Pitts Special biplane. It does aerobatics! Its take off and straight up into the great blue yonder, then it's non-stop loop d loops, cuban8s, flying upside down, 4G turns, and roll-roll-rolls. Vincent (the instructor) sits in the rear seat and talked me through each of... More

It is an absolutely fantastic experience. really, there are a very few things which can give you comparable feeling. I had never expected that piloting the plane can be so exciting and easy especially when you have an experienced instructor sitting behind you. I had zero experience in flying a plane before and also my 13 year old son did... More

My husband took this flight in Motueka. This was so much better than anything else he's ever done - 10 times better than free falling. The only thing he didn't do was take off and land the Pitts Special plane. As it's an instructional flight, Vincent first went through what would happen using a model plane to explain the manoeuvres.... More

This is seriously the most amazing thing you will ever do! The people working there are the friendliest people and will make you feel very at home. Then the fact that you actually get to fly a plane is nothing short of mind blowing you have to do this if you are in New Zealand. There is a reason this... More

Travelling is our hobbies and we try to have the best experiences each place can provide in out trip map, this one was one of the best we've ever had! Being lucky with a pristine blue sky and low tide we were rewarded with a fantastic scenic flight over Abel Tasman National Park. We saw all the coast line we've... More
