If you get a clear beautifulnday, seize the opportunity to go out on a flight. We went so close to Mt Taranaki we were able to wavebto the climbers. The pilot flew over our house so that we could take photos. Bestest birthday present from our Son!

I was given some vouchers for a flight for 2 people. As we had already enjoyed the wonderful experience we decided to pass the tickets on to a friend who had cancer but in the end he was too unwell to take the flight. Thank you Yolanda for your patience during this time and in honouring the vouchers even though... More

It was a pleasure working with you on this booking and working around your requirements. We are so pleased that your son and father-in-law got to enjoy the flight. Just sad we didn't get to meet you after all our phone calls! Hopefully we'll get to welcome you on board one day :). Jolanda and Richard More

This was an absolutely fantastic experience from the booking to execution. I arranged this trip prior to leaving the USA for New Zealand and Jolanda was very flexible and accommodating in my requests. We booked the four peaks flight but I wanted to add a flight over the Raurimu Spiral which they were happy to do for only a small... More

Very comfortable heli and great views through the windows. The pilot gets right up to the top of the volcano and makes sure everyone has good views and info throughout the trip. You shouldnt miss this and the price is reasonable.

Went on trip over the majestic peak of Mt Taranaki with Helliflight in early Feb14 and it was wonderful. Highly recommended either before or after you attempt the 1 day hike on the slopes of the mountain.

Superb flight ! Most importantly a very helpful, understanding & friendly team. Thank you Yolanda, Richard & Matt ! They were more than accommodating when our trip was postponed a number of times due to ill health. It was a once in a lifetime experience for my mum & sister from India & they found it absolutely awesome.
