U-FLY Wanaka

Flying experience

U-Fly offers you a unique experience unlike other Wanaka or Queenstown scenic flights over the Southern Alps – you get to experience flying the plane yourself!

Taking off from Wanaka airport, ringed by the mountains of the Southern Alps, your scenic trial flight will take you out over Lake Wanaka, circle around the mighty peak of Mount Aspiring and then land safely back at Wanaka airport. There’s no better way to see the Southern Alps than from the air and whilst taking in all of the amazing mountain views you’ll also take your first steps in handling a plane… all under the expert guidance of our professional, friendly flight instructors.

My Partner brought me a U-Fly ticket for Xmas. I took me about 3 months to use it due to commitments. Well all I can say is it was nothing more than amazing!! Fox, my instructor was second to none, like second to none!! Just amazing! When U-Fly say you fly the plane, you fly the plane, give or take as Fox did talk the controls a little. (Obviously, as Fox didn't want to die with me at the controls) But all in all I was flying the plane! I will be going back for a second go as I now know what to expect, like how control inputs affects the plane. All I can say is Fox is the most amazing instructor. Thank you Fox. PS: Please note that if you do the U-Fly your time in the air does go toward your pilot's license if you were looking to do one in the future.
