We took a 30 minute scenic flight over Christchurch. It was great to see the city at this stage of the rebuild. The mix of empty blocks and new buildings in the CBD is a stark reminder of what happened here. The pilot was very knowledgeable and made the whole experience very enjoyable. In addition it was fascinating experience listening... More

For anyone interested in aviation or simply wanting a great flight over the city. These guys are a must. Everyone needs to do an intro flight, who knows... you might just end up making a few visits and doing your first solo. Very professional and yet relaxed and friendly at the same time.

Miles took me on a fabulous flight.. or should I say I took us? I felt safe and well guided. Not complicated and reassured. The sight seeing was just awesome, going to where I wanted to go and as I had a double lesson we were able to travel a fair distance and see many places from the air. Highly... More
