It was amazing. The instructor was informative and patient. And the experience was incredible. Definitely something everyone should try atleast once. I know I'm interested in going for my pilot license now.

一生一次的体验。作为私照飞行员,强烈推荐大家飞一下米尔福德峡湾或库克山路线,而非仅仅是20分钟的体验飞行。这2个地方的飞行时间都在2小时左右。米尔福德峡湾,你会看到雪山,冰川,峡湾,瀑布,降落在地球最美丽的机场。库克山,你会看到和喜马拉雅山脉类似的壮观景象,以及更多的冰川,美丽的湖泊。都是绝佳的人生体验。每个飞行小时只有300纽币左右加点落地费,可以做3个人。并且,你可以在飞行中自己操作飞机,上升下降拐弯。飞行员和工作人员都非常友善。山地飞行的飞行员都是极其有经验的教练。强烈推荐。 With a Private Pilot License in NZ I have been to a few organisations for flying. I would comment Learn to Fly as absolute TOP place to learn and have some fun. I flow 3 days (10 hours) Mountain fly package. Wow and LOL....More
