Classic Flights – Travel back to the glorious era of flight whilst taking in the beauty of Wanaka
For decades before space travel was accomplished and technology overtook the minds of citizens, the ability to pilot an aircraft was a heroic endeavour. Pilots, both leisurely and military, were the astronauts of a generation, representing the danger and intrigue of the era. Boys wanted to don their own flying goggles and gals wanted to marry the men who flew the bespoke aircraft of the time. Relive the larger than life grandeur of flight with Classic Flights. This New Zealand based aviation company offers scenic flights over and around beautiful Wanaka, New Zealand.
Romance is in the air during a Classic Flights Freedom Romance expedition. You and a guest will depart the Wanaka Airport in either a Waco aircraft or 2 Tigermoths, then travel over the scenic Wanaka lands to a remotely glorious location. Upon arrival, enjoy an exquisite picnic lunch complete with a bottle of Otago Wine, while you gaze at the beautiful lake and surrounding natural glamour. After a pleasant repast, the nostalgic plane will return you to your point of origin.
For an adrenaline-filled journey, the Classic Flights Ultimate Barnstormer in a vintage 1940’s Tigermoth will leave you breathless and smiling. A 30-minute flight, the Barnstormer recreates the dazzling aerobic twists and turns that were so well known of these planes. Marvel at the quick responses, the sound of the propellers being drowned out by the rushing wind and your own heartbeat. View the Southern Alps and Lake Wanaka from every direction, even upside down.
