Starter Pack

The U-Fly Wanaka Starter Pack is for those who want to start their flight training journey one step at a time. This could be due to many reasons including timing, cost, not 100% sure they want to be a pilot yet – many reasons! But it is a great way to start to learn to fly. We recommend doing a Trial Flight first. All flight hours are logged and will count toward complete your PPL when you are ready.

Basic Control

The Basic Control Package includes 6 lessons including theory. You will learn pre-flight checks, take off, basic flying skills, and landing. Your flight instructor will guide you through all basic elements of flying a plane including some weather and terrain variants. This package is for those who are taking a bit more time to complete their PPL for whatever reason. All hours count towards your PPL.
