Tony the pilot and Christine in the office really looked after us. They were very aware of the best time for us to fly due to the weather and we had an awesome experience. Tony’s laconic commentary made it easy to follow the terrain. We could not have wished for a better way to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

I had the good fortune to go on a scenic flight to the amazing sights of Mt. Cook, glaciers and the alps. Full credit to the very professional pilot Tony, and the helpful staff. The fixed wing aircraft gave us the perfect view of this wonderful part of NZ, a memorable experience indeed. Malcolm Crawford

This is an absolute amazing experience and the only way to see the Southern Alps and all the glaciers. Christine was a star in the office and Tony was the best pilot ever and have excellent commentary on everything we saw.... which was so much more than a helicopter flight.... this is Franz Josefs best kept secret. A must do!!!! Thanks so much team, best experience ever

Spur of the moment decision after only going into town for coffee. Can not tell you how breath taking this flight is. If you’re considering this honestly just do it you won’t regret it. It’s one of those once in a lifetime experiences..
