Lake Wanaka Trial Flight - 20 min - U-Fly Wanaka

Experience a stunning trail flight over Lake Wanaka!

Highlights

  • No experience necessary - you FLY the plane!
  • Experience the thrill of flying with our certified instructors.
  • Enjoy the stunning views of Glendhu Bay, Mount Iron and Clutha River!

Soar over the amazing Lake Wanaka township and over the incredible glass-like Glendhu Bay on this trial flight experience!

Enjoy the views as you sweep over the lake, skirting past wedge-shaped Mount Iran and the sparkling Clutha River before heading back to base. The Trial Flight is a short 20-minute flight in a small aircraft with an experienced instructor at your side. The qualified instructor guides you through a take-off, flight, and landing, all while having dual control of the plane. The dual control means that you are in the safest hands and the instructor will only give full control to you when you feel comfortable.

No previous experience is necessary as you’re in the safest hands with our highly qualifies and experienced pilot/instructors and can take the controls as much or as little as you like. Everyone can learn to fly, whether you're 10 or 100!

Bring up to two friends or family members as passengers to enjoy the ride - available to purchase through checkout!

This experience is perfect if you’ve always wanted to learn how to fly or if ‘flying a plane’ is a must on your bucket list!

Exciting

I had the pleasure of flying with Lee who managed to keep me at relative ease given the turbulence (which was equal parts exciting and unnerving). Amazing experience, would recommend to anyone, no better way to see the range and township. Also really appreciate the certificate at the end, might be the inspiration to go for my pilots license some time in the future :)
