We were pleasantly amused to find our flight simulator mentioned in a recent opinion piece from The Age newspaper. We appear in a “guess who’s been seen at…” entry about one third of the way down the article, under the title “Chocks Away.”
While we’re thrilled to be considered a place to see or be seen, we would like to point out, however, that our simulator is a 737 aircraft, not a 747 as mentioned in the article. Getting a 747 into Queenstown airport would be too much of a challenge, even for our instructors.

Dom says it’s really rewarding that everyone who comes in for a flight has fun and walks out with a smile on their face.
Dominique began flying when she was 16 in her home town of Albury, New South Wales. Her friends purchased an introductory flight session for her at Zauril Aviation and she was hooked.
