Owner description: This is your chance to actually pilot a stunt plane, and roll and loop it.

If you can afford it: You must do it! It will be one of the highlights of your trip, if not THE highlight.

Not only is this a really cool thing to do, the people who run it are also extremely friendly. They make you feel welcome and do everything to make you feel comfortable.

This is unlike any other flight you could have, the plane is so powerful its like a roller coaster in the sky. And that's before you even take the controls. You get to do barrel rolls, loop de loops, figure 8's, inverted flying. It's a completely surreal experience for the adventurous!

I've traveled the world and done so many exciting things that it can be hard to truly amaze me. My flight in the Pitts special was so incredible. It's like race car driving in a 3 Dimensional world! Despite the extreme nature of the flight I always felt safe and secure in the aircraft. The attention to detail concerning both my safety and comfort was fantastic. I learned a lot about flying and have since offered rides to everyone in our family and will be back again soon! Thank you Allison and Vincent !

We were not planing on doing this activity at all, but our host at Edenhouse highly recommended this activity, and boy I am glad we listened! It is such an incredible experience! Vincent is so knowledgable, kind and fun that it makes you piloting a stunt plane seem easy.

The views of Abel Tasman park from above are also spectacular which makes the whole experience even more incredible. This is for sure something we will never forget, and I know my husband and I will be talking (and bragging) about this for years to come!

The video is amazing too!

I highly recommend this to anyone who comes to the area.
