V1 Rotate: New Zealand by Air

Tag along on an incredible aviation adventure.

New Zealand offers scenery like nowhere else. [Sam Weigel]

In this special edition of V1 Rotate, FLYING contributor Sam Weigel explores New Zealand in a Cessna 172. On the agenda? A spectacular multiday, self-fly tour with FlyInn to locations including Mount Aspiring, the Pyke River valley, Milford Sound, and Sutherland Falls.

Sam Weigel has been an airplane nut since an early age, and when he's not flying the Boeing 737 for work, he enjoys going low and slow in vintage taildraggers. He and his wife live west of Seattle, where they are building an aviation homestead on a private 2,400-foot grass airstrip.
