At the guidance of a professional flight instructor, you begin your experience by taking off from the mountain hugged runway, fly over the glacier lake of Wanaka, circling around the mighty peak of Mt Aspiring, and landing safely back on the grassy runway.
A scenic trial flight is a short 20min, 30min, or 1 hour flight in a small aircraft with an experienced instructor at your side. The qualified instructor guides you through a take off, flight, and landing, all while having dual control of the plane. The dual control means that you are in the safest hands and the instructor will only give full control to you when you are confident and comfortable to do so. Also, you have the chance to explore the epic landscape of Central Otago in the upper air.
