Come flying in our factory built state-of-the-art microlights. These aircraft feature a hang gliding wing and weight shift operation, very much like a traditional hang glider, but powered by a Rotax aircraft engines for optimum safety and reliability. Our pilots all have commercial licences issued by CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) All flights leave from the Motueka Airfield. Feel the wind, the thrill, the magic of flight, and wonder at the breathtaking views of the Abel Tasman on one of our discovery flights.

Fly free as a bird. Feel the wind in your face and breathe in the essence of the forest as you soar the ridges and thermals. Drink in panoramic mountain and sea views. Experience the effortless beauty of silent flying. At Sky Adventures we use the latest tandem aero-towing techniques to provide the safest, most enjoyable experience possible. “Tandem” hang-gliders are built for two and operated by an experienced pilot. The tandem hang-glider is towed into the air by a specially designed tow-plane called a “tug”. Unlike hill launching, aero-towing allows us to take you as high as you want and release you anywhere. Flying this way is safer and a lot more convenient than hill launching. The sky truly is the limit.
