Working with volunteers

Date: December 16th, 2021, Posted by Michelle

We are proud to be part of the Matukituki Charitable Trust volunteer effort in eradicating pests from the Mt Aspiring National Park in the Matukituki Valley region.

In order to make lighter work of the many high alping trap lines we provide flights to get the volunteers into those harder to reach locations.

The Trust has been operating in the region since 2015 and has a dedicated band of committed volunteers who are willing to give up their time to ensure the valley’s natural inhabitants are protected and enhanced.

August 2021 update

Date: August 14th, 2021, Posted by Michelle

We have had a mixed bag with the weather so far this month but on the good flying days it has been epic, with plenty of fresh snow in the mountains making for stunning alpine landings on all our scenic flights. All our shorter scenic flights are available in the morning or afternoon, during the day we are flying for Harris Mountains Heli-ski. If you are in Wanaka this winter and interested in taking a scenic flight give us a call. Flights go on demand with a minimum of two paying adults to confirm.

June 2021 update

Date: June 4th, 2021, Posted by Michelle

The great news is that snow has arrived in Wanaka and we are gearing up for a terrific heli-ski season with Harris Mountain Heliski.

However, while we wait for the season to kick off and the skiers to arrive we are all taking a little breather so we have closed off our online bookings for all our scenic flights for a short period from now until the 28th June.

We are still operating daily from Monday to Saturday so please feel free to get in touch with us if you are interested in flying and if we can fit you in we will!

Eloping in Wanaka? We have the perfect option.

Date: January 26th, 2021, Posted by Michelle

In our new Covid world wedding options have changed and whilst Kiwis are still getting married the choice to have a smaller ceremony or even just to elope is becoming more popular. An elopement is a lovely way to make your special day all about you and your partner.

Read about a real Wanaka Wedding we hosted last year where the couples plans were changed dramatically but they still experienced a very special day!

Read Eliza & Cat’s special story here.

Their wedding was organised by Boutique Weddings in Wanaka with photography by Nat from Alpine Image Co.
