Flight Club - Pukaki

This week come join us while we continue to explore the South Island, heading towards Pukaki. Our first stop of the night will be Hokitika, followed by a scenic flight over the Southern Alps before landing at Pukaki. Even if you have no experience you can still join us and learn a few things or two on the way and most importantly have a fun time doing what us members enjoy most. Remember this is a social flight group and we will be departing in two groups.
