Super friendly people willing to impart a wealth of knowledge, plus top notch gliders and perfect views make this a gem of club to try something different. Rod and Tom are always willing to share and answer all your questions. For me.. a perfect afternoon.

Amazing experience

Simply a great way to see Taupo flying like an eagle ! Fabulous experience with a great bunch of friendly professional people. You are made so welcome and can stay around the club all day if you wish. The first flight cost me $205 but I went back for two more flights which only cost me normal club rates (less than half-price). Great value...but be careful...the gliding bug is catching !!!

If you are in Taupo NZ (North Island) Take a Glider flight from 5000 ASL you will see the Lake at its best, see also across the lake to the Volcanoes, you will not get an experience like it on the ground, get great photos and talk about the experience for the rest of your holiday DO SOMETHING SPECIAL IN TAUPO ALL visitors welcome

What an awesome experience!

This was a bucket list item for me, and I'm so glad I was able to fly with Taupo Gliding Club! The pilots are so welcoming and the scenery could not be any more beautiful! Lake Taupo, Huka Falls, and even wild deer in the forest!!! My pilot, Gordon, let me take the controls of the glider and it was thrilling! What a fantastic experience!

I've just got back from here.
Firstly the customer service is amazing. I contacted Trev. Once i agreed I'd like to take part he offered to come pick me up from my hostel within half hour.
We got to the club, and within ten minutes I was sat in the glider.
Absolutely amazing experience. Staff are lovely and funny. Whoever you fly with will let you take control (it's not as scary as it sounds) and you can take as many pictures as you like. Your instructor will give you some history and info on the area around also.
I've never been so happy. We landed and i was like a child. I was so happy and buzzing with my experience. I'd do it over and over.
We glided for 34 mins, and considering there was zero wind and little thermal we did so well.
I even got a lift back to my hostel.

Overall excellent service and would do every day if I could! Thanks guys :)

An enjoyable time with people who enjoy and love flying

We arranged with Tom, the Club Manager to have our first experience at gliding. It was also a chance to see the Taupo region from a different viewpoint. What made the experience so enjoyable was the fact that the club is being run by people who obviously have a passion and love for flying. Perhaps just as significantly, if not more so, that they are professionals and understand the importance of safety. Everything was done by the book. This review is a little late, but I hope it reaches out to those keen on flying to visit the Club.

Fantastic experience, friendly and helpful people.

A wonderful experience that provides a great opportunity to see Taupo from a very different perspective. Far more cost effective than skydiving at half the cost for up to 30- 40 minutes of flight time. Safety is paramount and the instructors are all very experienced and knowledgable. The club is very welcoming and the people involved are more than happy to chat...it's hard not to become addicted.
