If you are interested in Volcanoes / Mountains or just love seeing different landscapes then this is a must - My wife who is disabled (can only walk one to two steps) and I were touring around New Zealand and always wanted to see Volcanoes but due to her disability thought it would only be from the bottom or on TV, We were passing Mountail Air at the base of Mt Ruapehu and thought we would ask if possible and they could not have been more helpful, They instructed us to drive our vehicle up to the side of the light aircraft and helped my wife out of the van and into the plane, At first I thought it may haven been a waste of money as you only get a good view of the scenery on your side -YES its true but I was very wrong - on the flight they show both passangers the same views by turning around each point of interest and their are a lot, the pilot had a vast knoledge of the area and various peaks / craters etc and kept us well advised throught the flight - I could go on and on how good it was for both of us - IF you go to NZ this is a MUST DO - not to be missed - A truly great life time experiance, mnay thanks John & Sara

We were lucky to have a morning flight on a calm crystal clear day when you could see forever. The flight was amazing because not only were you able to see the scope of the entire Tongariro National Park but everything to the horizon.The pilot provided all the necessary information of the attractions that you needed and allowed you to absorb the views.
It should be a definite thing to do and booking is easy to do.

Our decision to take the flight was really spontaneous, as one tended to misplan things when travelling with a baby of 20 months. But the booking of the flight was absolutely uncomplicated, although it was a last-minute decision, and they even agreed to take us in the late afternoon, regarding the good weather on that early summer day.

We took the flight of 35 minutes, flying over all the three volcanoes. The views of the magnificent mountains as well as the look into the grey crater lake of Mt. Ruapehu were just breath-taking! The pilot had a cheering and informative talk with us, explaining the sights and history of the area and offering individual routes for ideal photo-taking.

The exciting flight, the friendly and competent staff and the amazing view... In a word, it was an absolutely unforgettable experience. We felt lucky to have done that!

Mountain Air scenic flights in small Cessna aircraft (4 and 6 seaters). Tongariro National Park and World Heritage Area, Central Plateau, North Island, New Zealand.
Like best: BEING THERE. WHOLE EXPEREINCE WAS FABULOUS. Spring snow on the volcanoes, light wispy clouds, bright sun = beautiful pristine envoronment complemented by our pilot's enthusiastic, informative commentary and skilful flying to maximise viewing opportunities. All created a stunning and memorable experience. I had waited a long time for this adventure. THANK YOU MOUNTAIN AIR!
Liked least: Nothing - all good!
Take: cameras, sunblock, personal water bottles
Duration: short flights up to 35-40 minutes each
EXTREMELY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
