Have you ever wanted to fly a plane? Well now you can with the Flying South Experience! Combine all the True South Experience activities with a 40min private flying lesson to ensure you have an unforgettable day in the South of New Zealand.
Local Southern Girl, Laura, will pick you up from your accommodation in Queenstown and transport you to a private airstrip where an experienced flight instructor from Ace Aviation will take you and one other passenger up in a taildragger plane to teach you how to fly it yourself. No prior flying experience is required. Fly the plane over stunning rural landscapes and test your new skills by landing the plane!
