Come and fly short hops between Queenstown and Milford. Everything from small tailwheel aircraft to twin turboprops like King Airs are welcome.

Make sure to read up on the new Milford Sound Procedures here:

This is useful to pilots as well as controllers as it outlines the radio procedures used at Milford Sound when Flight service is on watch.
