Dear Olivia, Thank you for sharing your review of Air Milford with the TripAdvisor community. The photo you have shared of your Queenstown Scenic Flight is sublime, The Remarkables mountain range with just a little snow residual from the winter, Lake Wakatipu glistening blue and the Kelvin Heights peninsula golf course jutting out into the water all make for some incredible scenery. We are so pleased to hear that Hank was brimming with information and kept you informed and entertained throughout the journey - he has a wealth of local knowledge, with over 40 year experience flying in the region! On behalf of Hank and the Air Milford team, thank you for choosing to fly with us and for your high recommendation to future travelers. All the best, Mary, Guest services, Air Milford. ✈️NZ🗺️🥝📷😍⚓🛩️🐬
