You will not be disappointed flying with Mit! A happy, kind, friendly, knowledgeable, easy to talk to guy will sweep you into the air and show you all the sights.
This pilot knows his stuff and the local area. He’s not afraid to show you Golden Bay at its finest views!
He even picks up and drops off at the Heaphy Track. Cannot wait to fly again!

we planned to hike the heaphy track with two couples. we were going to do our own car shuttle but heard about Mit's option to fly from karamea right back to brown hut. considering our time constraints it made sense to do the flight. and talking to people on the track it was only a few $ per person more than the bus shuttle. it was also very convenient as we didn't have to schedule a specific time. we called from kohaihai when we arrived. some people had to rush the last day to catch a scheduled pickup.

on top of that it was a great flight. Mit flew us back along the track showing us the highlights from the air and what we had accomplished. he is an entertaining guide and very clear in his instructions around the plane. we landed in a farmer's field and the shuttle (4 km) had a great kiwi twist to it as well:) we picked up our cars and were settled in collingwood just a few hours after completing the track. thanks Mit.

What a fantastic experience this was and without doubt THE best way to see Golden Bay and Farewell Sound. Mit is a fantastic pilot and an entertainer too. He is the perfect advocate and embassador for Golden Bay. If you are a visitor to Golden Bay you must do this trip! Enjoy!

This was a brilliant way to start and finish the Heaphy Track. The service was flexible and convenient. Mit was friendly, full of information and didn't mind lots of questions. We had a great experience and would highly recommend this option to others.
