Flying with Hugh Robinson of Canterbury Aviation was, hands down, the best part of my husband and my two-week trip to New Zealand. Hugh took us from Christchurch to Milford Sound and back. Hugh's flying is so smooth that, on the flight out, I didn't even realize we had already taken off (I was shocked to look out the window... More

A beautiful day at Arthur's Pass, blue sky, no cloud, sun is out and no wind. Picked up by Hugh in his plane at a bush strip near Arthur's Pass. Flying over but close to the tops of snow covered mountains, close up to glaciers, spectacular views of Mount Cook, seeing heli skiers being dropped off for a day of... More

Where to begin? Hugh was the best tour guide I have ever met... We covered hundreds of miles of the must stunning picks, valleys, rivers, hills, trees, views...and Hugh knows every nook and cranny... He gave us a detailed description of what seemed every mile of our trip which was incredible! The history behind it, how people travel, live and... More

We were in New Zealand on business and had one free day to travel. Hugh Robinson made it happen. Within an hour after he picked us up at Christchurch Airport we were in the air headed for the Southern Alps including Mt Cook and their glaciers. Seeing them up close from Hugh's plane was a lifetime experience. The flight down... More

We booked the flight partly on the strength of the previous review - and nothing disappointed at all. Hugh arranged a completely customised flight for us out from Christchurch, over the Alps, taking in all the sights of the peaks, glaciers and lakes. We flew into Milford Sound which is a spectacular approach from the sea, up the sound and... More

We booked our South Island Scenic Flight with Canterbury Aviation based at Christchurch Airport. The owner, Hugh Robinson, first flew us in a small plane down the West Coast, with beautiful views of the beaches and Tasman Sea. Then at the little town of Franz Josef we transferred to The Helicopter Line for our trip up to the Franz Josef... More
