Come Fly With Us


Come Fly With Us (1 of 1).jpg

If you have ever thought about flying as a career or a hobby then why not join Mandy, Tracey and Kelly at Waikato Aviation.

For Tracey Gore and Mandy de Beer flying was something they had dreamed about since childhood. Tracey took her first flight at eighteen months in a glider piloted by her father and over the years flying with him secured her desire to fly as a career. At sixteen years old she started her flight training in earnest.

Mandy also took her first flying lesson at sixteen years old, two months after she arrived in New Zealand from South Africa. Twenty days before her eighteenth birthday Mandy earned her Private Pilot Licence.

Kelly Fuatai Lowen’s sisters are both flight attendants – Kelly might have followed in their footsteps but when she saw a picture of a Boeing 747 cockpit she thought it looked so ‘cool’ that her career path was set.

Mandy, Tracey and Kelly still love flying and today all three are flight instructors at Waikato Aviation. Mandy is also an aerobatic instructor.

A 20-minute flight with Mandy, Tracey or Kelly is a great way to experience the thrill of flight. Flights are available in our two seat Alpha aircraft or in the Cessna four seat aircraft, enabling friends or family to also enjoy the experience.
