Tow Hang Gliding in Queenstown
- Experience the highest & longest flight in NZ! All year round and less weather dependant than foot launching, a small plane called a ‘tug’ is used to pull you and your pilot up into the sky.
- You and your pilot will be foot launched from Coronet Peak located just 20 minutes’ drive from the center of town. There will be a courtesy shuttle to pick you up from town and drive you to one of the launch areas ranging from 3,800 feet to 5,500 feet high. The highest commercial take-off in New Zealand.
Your pilot will gently guide you through the steps required to become airborne so you can enjoy the breath taking views from Coronet Peak across the Queenstown Surroundings. Your friendly and professional team of tandem pilots are highly experienced and will ensure your experience will be one to remember!
- The hang gliding aerotow flight operates from a private airstrip 50 minutes’ drive east from the center of town. It is ideal for those with their own transport and who want to explore Wanaka and/or Central Otago, as the private and exclusive location sits in a valley under the majestic Mount Pisa. The flight launches and lands on wheels, no running required – just hold on and enjoy. A small plane called a ‘tug’ is used to pull you and your pilot into the sky.
