Trial Flights — Your introduction to flying

About trial flights

Trial flights are a wonderful introduction to flying. They make great gifts, to yourself or someone you know who's itching to take to the skies and take the controls of a light aircraft!

You fly with an experienced flight instructor who will be able to answer any questions you may have while you're enjoying a bird's eye view of Wellington.

What do I need for a trial flight?

  • Your voucher (You can purchase or give one below)
  • Proof of Vaccination against Covid-19
  • Closed toe shoes
  • Sunglasses
  • Camera

Harbour Circuit - 20 minutes, $194

This is the perfect introduction to flying. Take off from Wellington International Airport and take control of the aircraft over stunning Wellington harbour for 20 minutes then back in to land.

City Limits - 40 minutes, $264

Experience the thrill of flying in and around Wellington. You will take control of the aircraft over the massive Mākara windmills, around the south coast or up the Hutt Valley?

We have other flight training packages available for purchase online, if you’re feeling bold or especially committed. Check out the other options available on Learn to Fly.

As usual though, if you have any questions about any aspect of the purchase or training process, it’s always best to have a conversation with us before purchasing or committing to training.

🚥 WAC observes the Covid-19 traffic light system

We want as many people as possible to experience the thrill of flying. Like any organisation that offers flight training, this means that WAC takes safety seriously across all our operations. That applies to vaccination against Covid-19.

If you’re thinking about a trial flight, we require all members and visitors to our club rooms, offices and the hangar to be vaccinated. We will ask for proof of vaccination when you check in. If you arrive for your Trial Flight and cannot produce a vaccination record, the Wellington Aero Club may refuse your booking — the cost of your flight will be refunded, however, a $50 admin fee will be deducted.
