Sue is an amazing instructor for the newly initiated learning to fly. She is patient, practical and knowledgeable. I had a great flight learning medium turns and felt comfortable and confident with Sue’s instructing. Highly recommend Learn to Fly - Wanaka with Sue Kronfeld. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The experience in a Cessna 172 aircraft was nothing short of magical. It’s a great place with nice flying equipment and pilots. They show you how to fly as a beginner and then gives you a certificate at the end of the flying experience

We flew Thai airways to Bangkok then on to Phuket. Flight was excellent we had free upgrades to extra leg room seats. The staff were excellent and the food and drink provided was substantial and plenty We flew on a dreamliner to Bangkok then on a 747 for the hour flight to Phuket. Nothing to complain about on either flight

What a crazy idea of an activity! We thought there must be a catch but you really do fly! What's really cool is you can take a passenger for free so you get to share the experience, and they can take pictures for you too! Once you're in the cockpit, your captain explains the gauges and how it works, which is useful for when you're in control. The captain takes care of take off and landing, but everything in between, you're in control of. The control unit is very responsive so you do feel like you've got genuine control rather than it being just a gimmick. All in all, a really cool experience!

Thanks Noel, we ensure that the flight experience is one that you will forever remember and perhaps take up the flying technique again in the future. All the best Sue

We did the 30 minute flight with Ben. The cost included one person flying the plane with Ben the Pilot in the next seat and one passenger. We felt comfortable with Ben and my partner loved the chance to fly a plane. We saw some amazing scenery and enjoyed Ben's commentary along the way. We had fairly good weather for our flight so, apart from a bit of turbulance, it was smooth flying. We both thought the 30 minute flight was a good length of time.
