Great Experience

We enjoyed the day together with an experienced pilot. I and my wife had a wonderful and unforgettable experience driving a small plane and it was very amazing. They offered discount as well since my wife wants to try driving after she sit as passenger at first flight. All together it was a fun day!

Great Experience!

As someone who has never flown a plane before, I had all the feelings of nervousness and excitement prior to flight. However, my pilot, Tommy, made it very comfortable from take-off to landing. He explained everything carefully and I felt very safe while in the air. To top it off, the scenery was absolutely stunning and made the experience even more memorable. Thanks for a great flight, U-Fly!

Fantastic view and great instructor

I booked the 30min flight but changed it to the 1hr flight which was well worth the extra. The scenery was stunning and we had Fox Lee as the instructor who was very knowledgeable about the area and pointed out many different glaciers and other interesting things. Was allowed to take off, fly and land the plane with Fox Lee taking me through everything. If you have a desire to fly a plane I couldn’t recommend a better place to do a trial. With the $39 for additional passengers it also makes it a great scenic flight for the family.

Thank you for your valuable feedback. That is a really nice photo showing snowy mountains and Matukituki river mouth! On a beautiful day, the 1hr glacier ridge flight you will fly the plane yourself all the way to Mt Aspiring and explore the incredible scenery over the glacier!
