Learn to fly in our dual control aircraft with our experienced instructors whilst enjoying a stunning scenic flight out over Lake Wanaka and it’s islands up into Mount Aspiring National Park.
Our flight path on this flight heads to the mouth of the Matukituki Valley – the gateway to Mount Aspiring National Park – then on to pass over Lake Wanaka’s four islands, which are all beautiful sanctuaries for endangered flightless birds.
As you fly the plane you will enjoy views across both Lake Wanaka and over the mountains to stunning Lake Hawea. This region, a paradise for water sports lovers, truly comes to life when seen from the air. As your flight passes out over Lake Hawea as well as stunning mountain ranges you will see the other worldly circles made by crop irrigation and the valleys crowded with trees and rivers.
No previous experience is necessary as you will be with an experienced 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.
Enjoy one of the most scenic regions in the world from a new angle.
