    Flight to Whitianga: Absolutely brilliant service!!! They even picked me up from Ardmore cafe and drove me to the hanger. Pilot Mike was fantastic and pointed out sights while we were in the air. Two great landings as well :). Can’t fault the service and can’t wait to fly again. Erica Stanford

    My girlfriend and I had a great time flying around Auckland and getting to know it from above. The pilot (Mike) was really awesome!! As we were flying around Auckland, he was very informative about where we are, what we see, and what is beyond. He was super friendly and chill. It was a little windy when we went for our flight but before even starting Mike (the pilot) told us about it what we might expect during the flight.

Enjoy all that Whitianga has to offer with a scenic flight with Air Auckland. Whitianga has many great attractions from beaches, water sports, forest walks and boat excursions of Mercury Bay. Take in the visual diversity without leaving the comfort of your own private plane. Be sure to take lots of photos of all the great landmarks like Shakespeare Cliff and Cathedral Cove as your experienced travel guide identifies them.
