Ski Plane flight landing on the Tasman Glacier
Feb 2021
This was the highlight of our South Island trip. Spectacular views of the area. Fantastic to land of a glacier and have a walk around. Very nice pilot who chatted and told us about the glacier and took our photos.

Such a unique expreience flying in a Ski Plane
Dec 2020
We had an absolutely incredible experience out in a Ski Plane with our pilot Dan. We flew from Queenstown with Glenorchy Air to spend the day in Mt. Cook and wanted to add on a glacier landing in a Heli while we were there. I have to admit when all the Heli trips were fully booked my partner was a little disappointed, but we couldn't have been more wrong. We booked the Ski Plane experience and it was EPIC! Nothing like we've ever done before, a really unique experience. Landing on the Tasman Glacier and getting to experience the sheer size of it is a memory I will never forget. Thanks to all the team for making our time in Mt. Cook National Park a once in a lifetime!

Spectacular Flight
Aug 2020
Booked the basic 35-minute experience but were very extremely lucky to have this extended to 90 minutes flying, including a landing to pick up a staff member and a thrilling glacier landing. Brilliant weather and scenery made this a flight to remember. Friendly ground crew and experienced pilot added to the all-round great experience.

Incredible experience, highlight of the South Island!
Nov 2019 • Friends
InFlite were amazing! We organised the tour the day before and they fully catered to our needs and situation, we're flexible with payment and made sure we got in the air. We were looked after from the start with complimentary coffee/tea and a brief safety video. Our ski plane pilot was Dan who was a very experienced and passionate flyer who gave us commentary on our scenic flight and managed to land on the glacier despite the challenging conditions. Sand oh my... What a great that was! 360 degree views of the snow covered ranges with imposing My Cook/ Aoraki (sky piercer) in the distance. Ice shelves, avalanche zones and the Tasman glacier left us gobsmacked and humbled. Another first experience was getting bogged on the snow, the planes skis frozen to the snow with the quick landing causing friction and heat and then refreezing. Dan showed us vehivle recovery 101 and shoveled us out and with a bit of bouncing we slid out and up on our trip back to the airport. I cannot recommend this enough it was the absolute highlight of the south Island after during multi day walks and heaps of sightseeing. Thanks again InFlite!

Simply Breathtaking!
Although not fond of heights, I decided this was an opportunity too rare to miss. And I'm so glad I did! The views of the glacial valley, of the stunning Tasman Glacier and the awesome Mount Cook is something I will never forget. Landing on the glacier and taking in the scale and beauty of this majestic place, on a beautiful autumn day with the sun shining, was just magical!
