The flight

We provide foot launched flights from Coronet Peak located just 20 minutes drive from the centre of town. Let the SkyTrek courtesy shuttle pick you up from town and drive you to one of our launch areas ranging from 3800 feet to 5500 feet high. The highest commercial take-off in New Zealand.

Your pilot will gently guide you through the steps required to become airborne with us so you can enjoy the breath taking views from Coronet Peak across the Queenstown Surrounds. Our friendly and professional team of tandem pilots are highly experienced and will ensure your experience will be one to remember!

History

During the winter, we operate from the top of Coronet Peak. To access this area, the customer and pilot need to ride the chairlifts up to the top of the mountain. If the customer doesn't have a ski pass, they will need to purchase a foot pass for $35 on top of the cost for the flight (available for purchase from Skytrek at the time of check-in). The foot pass is not included in the price for the flight as many of our customers already have their own ski-passes which they can use (make sure you bring it with you)

Closure Period: We close temporarily in May and June until the ski-field opens (typically mid-June). During this time we don't operate any hang gliding or paragliding flights.
