Scenic Flights

SCENICS SMALL  USEExperience Hawke’s Bay like never before with an unforgettable scenic flight with Air Napier!

The Hawke’s Bay has some of the most beautiful scenery in New Zealand.  An aerial scenic flight with Air Napier is a great way to view the beautiful landscape.  We can tailor flights for the individual or small groups.

See the Gannet colony at Cape Kidnappers, the vineyard carpeted landscapes to the majestic Te Mata Peak or the primeval forest surrounding Lake Waikaremoana, your options are endless.

You can view our beautiful Art Deco cities anytime – daytime, dusk and evening.  Nothing can be more romantic than a night flight over the city.

You will have your own headset so you can hear the pilots’ commentary and a window seat to take spectacular photos.
