Abel Tasman Air is a small, family owned company, passionate about two things – flight, and this beautiful part of the world we live in! And we love sharing both with you. None of our flights are scheduled, so we aim to fit in with whatever your requirements may be. You can fly over Abel Tasman national park, explore the Top of the South Island or tour the North West, the choice is yours.
We are based at Motueka Airport and we operate almost 365 days each year. We have the best weather in the country as well. With over 12 years of operations, Abel Tasman Air (formerly Tasman Bay Aviation) is Nelson’s most experienced light fixed wing operator.
We strive to consistently surpass our client’s expectations in every aspect of our business by making safety, efficiency and personalised service our foremost objectives. If you are a holder of a private pilot’s license and would like to fly these scenic flights with an instructor and log the flight time, ensure you request this option at the time of booking. You could get a chance to do either mountain flying, tail dragger, strip flying, beach landing or, if you wish to build confidence, try the more “out of control” aerobatic and spinning type situations. We are here to offer you some great options.
