Wow. Never felt so safe in the air, best way to get to and from milford sound and a stop over on top of Mt Lindsay for a play in the snow and breathe in the freshest air youve gotta do it.

These guys were determined to get us in the air after two cancellations due to bad weather. When we eventually managed it two days later, it was worth the wait. We landed on Coronet Peak in the snow and had great views over Queenstown. This...More
