Just got in from the flight from Milford Sounds. It was a stunning flight. Out pilot Aaron was cheerful, informative and very skilful. The flight was mind blowing, the transition back to town seamless. Well worth the money

Took the opportunity to take a small plane flight out to Milford Sound for a cruise. The pilot was friendly and professional and the boat cruise was scenic with great picture opportunities. If motion sickness is a problem for you, prepare accordingly.

Customer Service was outstanding. The pilots were great, the tour guide for the hike was great, and the cruise of the sound was great. They even... More

Took the opportunity to fly back from Milford Sound to Queenstown in a light plane and it was great. Saw sights from the air I would never have known existed. Thoroughly recommend a light plane to see the landscape properly well worth it.

Our flight was on one of their smaller planes; there were only 6 passengers. The pilot named Corey, was very professional and interested in making sure everyone on the plane was able... More

We booked fly-cruise-heli-Dart river jet package for Milford sound with Milford flight company. Although we had to start the tour quite early (around 7am), it's worth!! They picked us up at our hotel and took us to Milford flight office. The pilot came to escort us to the small airplane (8 seats). The plane took off smoothly. We saw the... More

Being an aircraft buff (I work at Luton airport in the UK.....), our flight from Milford Sound back to Queenstown was a dream come true for me. Nine of us in an Islander aircraft, plus Andy, a clearly highly skilled pilot who had time to take us on a couple of 'deviations' and give us a commentary on what we... More
