Beautiful scenery, open cockpit and a classic aircraft. You get to sit in the front seat. The air stunts over the lake (loopings and few rolls) made the experience complete. Just great, don't mis it!
We had the most amazing flight over Lake Wanaka into the national park with Classic Flights. The weather was outstanding and the views, incredible. To be flying without any barrier to the outside gave us exhilarating 360 degree views. The cockpit was surprisingly roomy and the windscreen gave great protection from the wind. To do this in two vintage tiger... More
I have been lucky enough to have flown in a number of Tiger Moths, but the Classic Flights experience at Wanaka was by far the best. My 30 minutes of soaring above beautiful valleys and snow capped mountains was just amazing. The Tiger Moth lets you feel the romance and rawness of flying. The fact you sit at the front... More
We were so excited that the weather was good enough for our trip with Peter at Classic Flights - it was just amazing, word can't express the feeling of flying, the scenery and the experience. So relaxed, organised and creative (take some time to see the exhibits) Just do it - worth every $. Thanks Peter for making our trip... More
Peter & Julie are both so lovely and welcoming and you feel right at home as soon as you walk into the reception. The hangar was really well-decorated and had some great planes. We were really lucky with the weather as it was blue skies for our entire stay in Wanaka. The views were unbelievable -- never seen anything so... More
Want to have the best experience of your life? Take a Tiger Moth flight with Peter at Classic Flights. He has a 100% safety record and has flown various aircraft for more than 25 years. His specialty is the Tiger Moth. (Since I was a bit anxious about going up in a small plane, I asked all the vital questions... More
Thanks so much for the great comments and really thrilled you enjoyed your tiger flight over Wanaka so much. We feel this is the most scenic location in NZ in which to take a flight in one of these beautiful vintage aircraft. We never tire of it so Im sure seeing the beauty of the place for the first time... More
Superlatives fail to adequately describe this thoroughly exhilarating experience. From the warm and friendly reception provided by Julie, to the silky aerobatic skills of Peter, the whole experience was faultless. The fact that the skies were blue, the windsock limp, and the temperature, for mid winter, a very generous 2 degrees Celsius, certainly added icing to an already perfect cake.... More
Wow Steve, thanks so much. Its undeniable just how much Pete loves flying these old girls. For him its such a delight every time he goes flying. Thanks for sharing our passion and we hope to see you back in Wanaka again sometime – maybe with your girls next time for a flight in our gorgeous new Waco. More
We booked the freedom of romance flight months in advance for my partner's 50th birthday, an activity to share together. We made it quite clear when booking that this trip was for a special event.We were telephoned at 2pm on Sunday, the day before the trip to say it was cancelled due to there being one pilot available, the other...

The Owner Peter, had gone to Auckland to fly an aircraft back to Wanaka 5 days before your booking and was due back in Wanaka 3.5 days before your flight. Due to severe, unexpected weather throughout NZ, Peter got stuck in the North Island and couldn’t safely get back to Wanaka for the day of your flight despite countless attempts... More
I decided to book a Tiger Moth flight for my husband as I knew he would love it and chose the Freedom of Romance package as I knew I would love that. Everything was excellent. Julie, Peter and Shaun could not have been more helpful or attentive. The flights were everything we could have hoped for and the food was... More
Thanks guys. We think romance is still alive and well and this is such a special location to share together. We now a new 1930's open cockpit bi-plane called a WACO where you can take 2 passengers in the front side by side. More
I would definitely recommend the Tiger Moth flight to all who visit Wanaka. Julie, Peter and Shaun made our flights an experience we will always remember. Thanks! We will be back.
