My Partner brought me a U-Fly ticket for Xmas. I took me about 3 months to use it due to commitments. Well all I can say is it was nothing more than amazing!! Fox, my instructor was second to none, like second to none!! Just amazing! When U-Fly say you fly the plane, you fly the plane, give or take as Fox did talk the controls a little. (Obviously, as Fox didn't want to die with me at the controls) But all in all I was flying the plane! I will be going back for a second go as I now know what to expect, like how control inputs affects the plane. All I can say is Fox is the most amazing instructor. Thank you Fox. PS: Please note that if you do the U-Fly your time in the air does go toward your pilot's license if you were looking to do one in the future.

The flight was one of the best activities I have even done in NZ. The view in the air was magnificent, and the flight instructor was very instructive and friendly. Highly recommended.

Our pilot/instructor was warm and friendly and had lots of time for us. The views were incredible and he made us very comfortable and gave me a great introduction to mountain flying. I will definitely do this again next time I’m in Wanaka and I will go straight back to U-Fly.

My grandson who is 11 had the best time and learnt a great deal and practically landed the plane under the excellent instruction of Juandre (JJ) Van Der Merwe. JJ had a calm and encouraging manner and remained professional throughout the flight. My grandson absolutely loved every second!
