We just drove by and stopped on our way to Wellington. It was an awesome experience and we got lots of really cool photos! Matt, the pilot, did a great job of explaining everything and the views were great. I highly recommend this activity!

We were driving past and stopped to enquire about a flight. Thirty minutes later we were in the air. The scenery was unbelievable. Snowcapped volcanoes, excellent commentary from our pilot. Value for money we felt. A once in a lifetime experience!! Do it!

The flight was super smooth, and the pilot (Matt?) did a fantastic job of not only ensuring our comfort but also of explaining the sights. The views were superb, and a good deal for the price we paid. Glad we drove past! :)

Matthew at Mountain Air went out of his way to get me in the air in my narrow time slot. He (the pilot) was very friendly and professional, and all this topped off with great scenery.

We had not considered doing a flight around the mountain until we drove past. It was a day out of the box weather wise and our decision to fly around both Ruapehu and Ngarahoe turned out to be the highlight of our weekend. Thanks guys...More
