Scenic flights in the heart of New Zealand.

Scenic flying in the heart of New Zealand

We love to fly! Philip's been backcountry flying for over 35 years and a visit to Lake Heron isn't complete without a scenic tour of the station's back blocks - or beyond..... 

We're in the heart of the South Island so we can fly north, south, west or east. We are surrounded by mountains and glaciers and a 50 minute flight takes you over some of New Zealand's most rugged alpine scenery.

Further afield, are the beaches of the West Coast, the high peaks of the Mt Cook region or the wilderness of South Westland.

We operate a Cessna 185 for our scenic flights and aircraft charters. Our base and airstrip are a 5 minute drive from Lake Heron Cottage. 

Stay and fly or combine a day trip to the area with a scenic flight. 

Flights available by prior booking.
