We use different flying and teaching sites around Auckland, all beautiful, wonderfully scenic, especially when you get to experience them from our privileged point of view, from the sky. They are located within an hour of the city.
Every day, we pick the ideal site according to the wind and weather conditions on the day to give you the best and safest experience. We ultimately decide in the morning, which site to use and times to meet. Call us at 9am in the morning! It best if you are flexible to travel to increase your chance for a great day out.
Many sites are rather remote, so please make sure to be organised for a day with food and lots of drink. Wear comfy clothing according to the temperatures; most essential is good footwear of hiking boots or well treaded sports shoes and a wind-breaking jacket, plus sun protection.
Once you book, we will send you a more details info sheet about your day.
days to fly
We teach and fly both on weekdays and on weekends, every day the conditions suit, nearly all year long. Only in July, which is typically the worst month of the year with muddy paddocks and changeable weather which makes it too hard to get a full and valuable day teaching in. Simply call us or email us to book a time or to discuss the options.
Ring at 9am to find out what we can do on the day and where and when to meet. Typically, we leave town at about 10am.
Your own instructor for the day is $400 with your gear or $450 with our gear, $600 for 2. Book now or ask questions!
