Learn to fly in Wanaka - courtesy of experienced pilot and aerobatics expert, Kylie Krippner aka U-FLY!
Founded in 2014, U-FLY offers scenic flights and microlight flight training based at Wanaka Airport. Set in the stunning Southern Lakes Region, flight paths in this exceptional region of New Zealand offer views over numerous large glacial calved lakes, great weather and spectacular mountains in the backyard.
Giving visitors the opportunity to fly a plane themselves whilst soaking in the wonderful scenery surrounding Lake Wanaka and the Southern Alps in Mount Aspiring National Park, the photographic opportunities are abundant! Just minutes from the airfield, a wilderness of glaciers, beech forests and alpine lakes awaits past Treble Cone and Cardrona ski resorts.
U-FLY has become an industry leader on South Island, offering flight experiences and aerobatics lessons in a safe and comfortable setting - the newest fixed-wing aircraft on the airfield. A no rushing, friendly and personalised flying experience.
U-FLY have two National Aerobatic champions available to teach you aerobatics in a safe and nurturing environment - whilst their best-selling intro experiences provide hands-on learning in the skies above the UNESCO South West World Heritage Park (Te Wahipounamu).
Join Kylie and the team in Wanaka for a first time flight or progression lessons, exploring the finest alpine scenery in the world whilst improving your flying skills and terrain awareness.
