Red Cat Biplane Flights

Red Cat Biplane Flights offers a unique aviation experience. We are the only company in New Zealand operating an open-cockpit Grumman biplane that can take two passengers in addition to the pilot. This means you can share the fun and adventure with a family member, friend or partner. On all our flights you get to wear a leather flying jacket, leather helmet and flying goggles. We can fly throughout New Zealand but our base is at Pukaki Airport near Twizel in the spectacular Mackenzie Basin and only 5 km south from the turn off to Aoraki Mount Cook. We offer a range of flights from our popular Mackenzie Magic option through to flying over New Zealand's largest glaciers. Prices start from as little as $245.00 per person.
