Glide Queenstown

About Glide Queenstown

We started way back in 2000 flying mostly paragliding/hang gliding customers and became the most experienced dual tandem Company in NZ. Over the next 2 decades the business grew to a crew of 20 and was flying over 6000 passengers per year with a reputation for safety unmatched. During the pandemic the decision was made to reduce the size of operations going into the future and focus more on high performance gliding.

In 2023 Coronet Peak Tandems as it was known, changed its name to Glide Queenstown, to more align with the addition of its sailplane (glider) flights offered.

Fronted by Angus Tapper who started his career in aviation at 15 years of age, he went on to fly commercial aeroplanes in and around the Queenstown/Milford Sound area for 10 years. Looking for something different, the tandem Company was started back in 2000. 4 times NZ Paragliding champion & having placed 8th in the World in 2001, high performance gliders were always going to be a good fit.
Angus has achieved his FAI Gold and 3 Diamonds badges in sailplanes to date and over 8,000 hours airtime in aviation.
