The flight

We provide 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.
