Fly My Sky is a small airline based in Auckland, New Zealand. It operates between Auckland and Great Barrier Island. The company registered in 2007 is owned by Keith and Robyn McKenzie. The airline grew out of Mountain Air.
In 1998 Mountain Air added two Britten Norman Islanders and two Piper Aztec aircraft to its fleet and extended its services to provide New Zealand wide charter flights. Scheduled services were also developed to provide several flights a day between Auckland International Airport, Whangarei and Great Barrier Island in the Hauraki Gulf branded as Great Barrier Xpress. Whangarei was withdrawn in 2008. Services serve both Claris and Okiwi airports on Great Barrier. Special window kits have been put into the two Islander aircraft to provide more windows so passengers can have better views. Two more Britten-Norman Islander aircraft were added to the fleet in 2006 and 2007.
Prior to the tarsealing of Okiwi Airfield in May 2014, Fly My Sky joined Great Barrier Airlines in refusing to fly to the airfield during the winter. This left Claris as the only air link to the island.
One of the airline's Britten-Norman Islander aircraft had a rough landing at Okiwi airport in January 2013. No one was injured in the incident. The airline CEO said it was wind sheer that caused it just before landing.
