Approx. 50 Kilometres flying distance over Lake Wanaka
Lake Wanaka and the surrounding mountains are one of the world’s most beautiful destinations. Your trial flight will let you soar over the picturesque Wanaka township, and then on over stunning and often glass-like waters of Glendhu Bay.
The views are truly amazing and you feel like you can see forever across the mountain range of the Southern Alps out to the West Coast. A sweeping turn over the lake takes us back to our base at Wanaka airport, skirting past wedge-shaped Mount Iron and the sparkling Clutha River.
The beautiful vastness of Lake Wanaka, the islands, valleys and land surrounding here are simply breathtaking and you’ll see why this is such a popular global tourist destination. For those visitors short on time or limited by budget, this is the flight lesson for you! No previous experience is necessary as you will be with an experienced pilot/instructor and can take the controls as much or as little as you like. There is no pressure and you’ll learn the basics of flying a plane in a relaxed enjoyable atmosphere. Everyone can learn to fly whether you’re 10 or 100!
