I’m 1.95m tall. Was shoved into a seat that was too small. Seat in front closed on my knees. Pilot wasn’t interested. He could have moved me to the seat behind him but was just keen to slam the door on my leg. No commentary at all. Just pain. Back now injured.

The staff are very friendly. I had amazing flight from Invercargill, land on a beach, people got off, some got back on, and back to Invercargill. I was in co pilot seat and had a commentary from Ray the pilot. Couldn’t recommend doing this enough,

Fantastic views on a clear day. Luggage is limited to 15kg checked and small bag on board which is plenty. Check in is all very easy at Invercargill airport and flight was good, only 15-20 minutes. Like sitting on a comfy couch, it is very cosy, almost no leg room but it is fine. Once landed you get taken by a van to town and they do quick tour on the way which was nice. Grab bags and you are off. Such a convenient service as they were really busy. Had to wear masks. Friendly staff and I would definitely go again.

This was our first time to Stewart Island and to save time we decided to fly. The flight over was into a storm but Raymond handled the plane superbly. The best thing was on the day we left the island, my daughter left her best friend ‘Bunny’ on the waterfront playground, which we didn’t realise until halfway back to Queenstown. We called the office and they then called the island. The lovely lady there walked over to the playground and found Bunny and out her on the plane back to Invercargill and then Bunny was posted home. Such lovely kind people.

Our group flew to Oban return in Feb/Mar 2020. The Islander flights were very efficient: on time, good briefing from the pilot, efficient ground transfers, everything you'd want. And a very good landing in challenging conditions at Invercargill on the return. I wanted to fly to the west coast and have a short walk on the beach. Booked a scenic but the office was slightly funny about it: would depend on time and weather (of course) and how things worked out with aircraft on the day. Finally got a firm booking. It turned out we were flying with Raymond, the owner. We discussed possies with him over a map and he suggested where we could land and where we should fly for a good scenic over the southern part of the island. One of us was nervous about small planes and Raymond planned a flight that would keep us out of bad chop. What a flight! We made a fighter pilot approach and landed on the beach at the Gullet, where we had a short walk and found pilot whale skeletal remains. Then off again - great power in the P-32! - we toured Doughboy, Pegasus, the various granite knobs that stick up, Paterson and a final swing over Oban. With great stories along the way. Spectacular. Not outrageously expensive. Well worth it and highly recommended! Thanks Raymond!
