Learn to Fly

Huge mountains and big skies – flight training in Wanaka is exceptional

Wanaka is a great place to learn to fly, with stable weather and varied terrain it offers ideal conditions to train with fully certified and approved CAA instructors.

Imagine taking control of a small plane or helicopter and flying yourself around the magnificent mountain surroundings of the Southern Alps while working towards your private pilot’s licence.

Or, if you’re short of time and just want to give it a go, take control and become a pilot for 20-minutes while flying your own scenic flight. Take off, fly and land all under your own steam with one of our friendly pilots at your right hand. This is a once in a lifetime adventure you’ll relive forever – a classic Wanaka experience you simply must do.
