Vintage Flights

Have you ever dreamed of experiencing a piece of aviation history?

To step back in time where Pilots were larger than life, and heroes to all those who lifted their eyes skyward to the sound of an old tigermoth flying overhead?

Then take a flight-seeing trip around Wanaka and see breathtaking New Zealand scenery in a Vintage Tigermoth. Experience the excitement of the early flyers and their flying machines; the smell of oil and aviation fuel, combined with the aroma of fresh leather.

As you don the old - style leather flying helmet, complete with flying goggles and silk scarf, experience the anticipation of being taken back in time to the nostalgia of this by - gone era.

The exhilaration of the open cockpit and the wind in your face - discover the freedom and romance of a vintage scenic flight from Wanaka, one of the most spectacular scenic locations in New Zealand.
