    What to Expect
    Your flight will take-off from our base (address provided on voucher). Take a scenic 25-minute drive from Wanaka Township to the base and check-in at the hangar at least 15 minutes prior to your flight time. Flight times are flexible, operating on demand between 8am and 4:30pm.

    Take-off and enjoy the scenic flight from the base in Matukituki Valley above tussock covered slopes to the rugged snow-capped peaks at the border of the Mount Aspiring National Park. Land on a snow-covered peak and enjoy the opportunity to touch snow year-round with this scenic flight.

    This 25-minute flight experience will show you the amazing scenery of this area like no other!

    Your pilot will provide detailed commentary of the area during your flight on our two-way headsets. With the hangar based at the start of the Matukituki Valley your scenic flight time is maximized over remote back country.

    Such a wonderful experience, our two year old absolutely loved it, especially the snow landing. The team at Aspiring Helicopters were awesome! My sister in law is afraid of flying and they were so wonderful she conquered her fears and went up!
