This was a fantastic experience. I was a little nervous before arriving, but Tony explained how the gyroplane worked and all was good and safe. It was great to actually have a go at flying yourself. The all round view from the gyro plane is great, better than other types of aircraft I've been in. Definitely recommend this experience for... More

A voucher for a 'hands on Gyro flight' had been waiting to be used for some time, and this Waitangi weekend all plans came together. A fantastic experience in a wonderful machine that felt so safe and easily controlled. Wonderful weather combined with amazing views over the mount left an experience that will linger for a long time. Many thanks... More

I thoroughly recommend taking the introductory flight, it is fantastic value for money and a fantastic way to see the area from... More

I was not sure what to expect as we went through the briefing but the moment we left the ground the sensation of flying was unbelievable. The visibility was amazing and as we flew around the mount you could see the hole area and the people walking up to the summit. If you want to take photos you must have... More

My lesson was a great experience. Tony did an outstanding job in the classroom explaining aerodynamic lift and the physics of the equipment and flying it. Elton, my instructor was knowledgeable, patient and fun. The equipment is top notch and easy to control. We did several circles around the little island just to the southeast of Mt. Manganui to get... More
