    Exciting experience!

    Had a trial flight with Mainland Air from Dunedin. I was so well looked after both on the ground and in the air. The flight was very exciting - got to take the controls, and got to experience increased and zero gravity, flew over the coast and had a great view from a much lower height than on a usual flight. The pilot was terrific and answered all my questions. I don't do adventurous things usually, so this was a special treat and it exceeded all expectations! Thank you Mainland Air!

    What an experience

    Amazing experience. Daniel was great and really put me at ease. As I completed the take off he threw out the phrase "mate, your flying a plane!" Highly recommend.
