A bit about us!

I am Shaun and with my wife Daniela we own and operate Fly Fiordland. Shaun is a kiwi, raised on the West Coast. Shaun completed his commercial Pilots license in 1996, in 1997 Shaun started instructing private pilots in Queenstown. In 1998 Shaun joined Air Fiordland  flying the scheduled service between Queenstown and Milford Sound. In 2000 Shaun took the role of remote pilot based in Martins bay for Hollyford Track guided walks. In 2010 Shaun and fellow pilot Jennie formed Fly Fiordland to provide a non corporate personal company that would work with with independant travellers who did not want the mainstream cattle truck tourism that new Zealand was promoting.

Daniela and Shaun met in 2000 and married in 2006. We have 2 children and 2 grandchildren living locally.

Daniela spent 14 years as a Doc ranger gaining an extensive knowledge of Fiordland National Park. Daniela became Fly Fiordlands office manager in 2017.

Peter MacDonald has 50 years in the aviation industry as a commercial pilot, journalist and CAA inspector. Peter joined Fly Fiordland in 2016 after leaving the CAA to develope and maintain safety management systems and conduct regulare audits and risk management reviews.
