We had an amazing day out doing the West Coast Flight the other day. We flew over the National Parks and the views were spectacular. It was especially awesome as It is a high winged plane so the views were almost completely unobstructed and the photos had hardly any of the wing in them. The information on the flight was also fantastic and he really knew his stuff, we learnt a lot. Thanks for having us out Mit!!! A HIGHLY recommended tour if your in the bay to see all the sights, especially on a short time frame like we were!!

Took the farewell spit tour around Golden Bay after visiting the spots on the ground. Amazing the different perspective that the air provides. Mit, a laid back kiwi bloke, was a fantastic pilot and guide with good stories from the area.

We had a spectacular and fun trip back to nelson after our mtb heaphy trip. Mit is a pleasure to fly with- inspiring confidence and keeping us entertained with banter and interesting commentary. We consider it just as much a highlight as out awesome trip through the heaphy.

The flight was spectacular and Mit was laid back and fun. We took bikes and the system for loading them under the wings looked bombproof - I wasn't worried at all.

The go-to guy for mountain bike shuttles when riding the Heaphy Track. I've previously gone with another operator and dissembling the bikes to pack them into bags was a pain. Mit has them racked up under the wings in a jiffy, totally secure and adds to foreground to those great pictures out of the window. The other big advantage of this service is that you Mit lands in a paddock just a few clicks north of the trail head on the Collingwood side so no tiresome bus shuttle from Takaka airfield. Mit has really nailed those paddock landings! We were up and riding within minutes. Add to that a great commentary en route highlighting the main features on the track - just ignore the terrible lawnmower related joke, you'll know when you hear it - and you have a five-star service at less than the cost of some of the competitors. Will be flying with Mit again soon I hope.
