I was trying to work out what to do in Wanaka and I came across their website and I thought why not, I've always wanted to learn to fly. Then I saw that they will take you out for an Aeorobatics lesson and I thought this is a must do.
It's so much fun, they let you climb the aircraft up to 6,000ft and then show you some of the tricks (some of which are really cool) and then it's your turn. You learn how to do a loop and a roll and do it all by yourself. Which is so much fun to actually be able to do yourself.
I still can't believe you can actually do this, especially as I've never flown a plane before, Trevor the instructor was really great and explained it all (and was also lots of fun during the flight) and don't worry it's not that hard to do them and you'll end up grinning from ear to ear.
If you want the instructor can then show you a proper aerobatics routine which is really impressive what they can do with the plane, so it really worth doing it for the adrenaline rush.
So if you're in the area I can't recommend this enough, you get great views of the area and it's such a blast to learn to fly aerobtics, driving a car round the rest of New Zealand is going to seem very tame after this.
I just wish it could have been a longer flight, I would love to come back and learn the other stunts.
