What To Expect

Head out to the landscapes of Omarama in New Zealand and enjoy an exhilarating flight in a splendid glider. With a professional instructor to join you, who will provide an in-depth safety briefing prior to take off, you'll soar to the skies like a pro to view the breathtaking scenery in the region. You have control of the flight, as you and your instructor can opt to make your flight smooth, gentle, and scenic, or pepper it with heartstopping aerial acrobatics. The aero-tow takes you over the mountains and lakes of Mackenzie Country's beautiful lands, complete with panoramas of Mount Cook, and the great lakes of Ohau and Pukaki. While in the air, your instructor can even allow you to give the controls a go, and it's possible to extend your flight if you wish; just let your instructor know. It's an unforgettable experience over a beautiful landscape that you won't soon forget.
