My favourite part of the flight was the veiws out of the windows and the amazing crew for making the flight safe and cool. The handsome man handing out the lollies did a great job.

I'm from the UK and the flight was well worth fitting into a very busy trip to New Zealand. The staff could not have been more helpful during the booking process and the flight itself was an amazing experience. I doubt that there are many places left where you can fly such an iconic aircraft over a capital city ... and what a place to do it - the flight took in the city itself, the amazing coastline, and a few islands. A fantastic way to see a fantastic country. Will definitely be booking this again on my next visit. Thank you to the staff for making this a very special day.

This is a really special thing to do! The aircraft is a genuine DC3 and the trip over Auckland is superb. The entire journey takes place at c1500 feet, so the views over the city and the surrounding area are just great. The folk operating the service are unpaid, and clearly do it because they love it. The funds go into keeping the aircraft in service. It’s also great value and makes for a special gift.

I have had the pleasure of travelling with the DC3 crew on several scenic days and private charters and tours. The crew are passionate about the aircraft and are thoroughly professional, interesting, and fun. Anyone who is interested in the history of British, American, and New Zealand aviation must join in on a scenic tour over Auckland. The sound of those engines!!!

I arranged a scenic flight on the DC3 for 23 family and friends to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was a fabulous and memorable experience and everyone commented to me that they had had an amazing time. The pilots and cabin crew were informative, professional and very welcoming. I really recommend this experience as a fantastic way to celebrate a special occasion, and with a large enough group chartering the plane for a time to suit.
