Trial Flight Services
The first step to starting your aviation journey is Trial Flights. You don't need any previous experience with any of our trial flight services. Just come and fly with us.
We offer 20 minutes, 30 minutes, and 1 hour Trial Flight Sessions in one of the most beautiful regions in New Zealand. During your trial flight session, one of our highly experienced pilots will guide you so you will get to take off and even land the plane. While you are piloting the plane, you are going to see some of the most beautiful scenery around the central Otago region. Depending on the length of your flight, you will be able to see Lake Wanaka, Wanaka Township, Mou Waho Island, Lake Hawea, and Mt Aspiring National Park from above.
This is a once in a lifetime experience and you get to take one of your friends or family members to join you on this epic journey for just an extra $40 dollars.
The offer still the same, you can choose 20 minutes, 30 minutes, or 1 hour Trial Flights. What makes this different is, you will be flying in the only Diamond Aircraft - DA 40 in the South Island.
The DA 40 is an Austrian designed four-seater, single-engine aircraft made up of composite material developed from the successful DA 20. It consists of a fixed tricycle landing gear & a T-tail with low cantilever wings (they have no external struts or bracing). ZK-YHK was originally built in Ontario, Canada in 2006, flown as C-GPDA before being sold from Diamond Star Aircraft Sales Ltd in August 2008. She joined the Top Flights fleet in January 2017 & is a staff favourite to fly.
