The pilots are top-notch! Their skill is matched by their knowledge of the area, pointing out locations and sharing local history. The scenery is not to be missed. Also a GREAT alternative to McCarthy Road!

If the weather is good, take the opportunity to have a flight over this stunning landscape. Strangely Mountain Air are professional and very competent so you are in safe hands. I took the 50 minute tour which covered an impressive variety of terrain.
