Omarama Glider flight amazing

Omarama glider flight was an amazing experience. One off the bucket list birthday gift for my partner. She was overwhelmed by the feeling of glider flying and it was the best thing she had ever done. Omarama great location amongst the mountains and lakes of the Mackenzie basin and they have the best weather conditions to fly. The pilot was enthusiastic and professional company. Thanks for making a dream come true.

Enjoyed it!

We were 2 friends flying the same day. We were able to fly in the same time which is really cool! I enjoyed very much the views and the thrills! The flight lasted a bit longer than 30mns and I did some aerobatics (not mandatory but really fun!). My pilot was friendly, explained me everything! On the other hand, my friend got sick because of turning a lot above the mountain and her pilot was not as friendly, and didn't offer her to pilot or anything. I recommend this to do something different and to see NZ from above. Totally worth it with bookme price and good weather!

Hi Charlotte Thank you for your review - I'm pleased to hear that you really enjoyed your experience, but I'm sorry to hear that your friend didn't have such a good time. Unfortunately some people are susceptible to motion sickness in gliders, as gliders do sometimes have to make tight turns to maintain or gain height. All our trial flight clients do get the opportunity to take the controls - subject to suitable conditions. If your friend was feeling ill, it would not have been safe for her to have been given the controls. Guy Sanders General Manager

Tremendous experience

I had an excellent deal here on bookme. My Swedish pilot was great company, entertaining, professional and let me steer the glider for a couple of minutes. We even made a couple of loops! Highly recommended.
