The sheer experience of taking a helicopter flight over the vineyards of Bannockburn, Bendigo and the Cromwell Basin is breathtaking especially when you are skimming snow capped peaks! However when you are in one of the most advanced helicopers - quiet and fast - it is even more so. The commentary from the pilot is great and you can chat... More

Wow.. what an experience. Both Richard & Jolanda are friendly and make you feel right at home straight away. The chopper it's self is great quiet (as far as choppers go) and comfortable. Richard, the pilot knew his stuff and gave a great commentary along the way. We landed up the top of the Pisa Ranges and got to play... More

Let Richard and Jolanda treat you to a very memorable experience. They are very conscious of the weather patterns and will wait for the best times to fly.The views of the coastline, Mount Taranaki and surrounding countryside give you a good insight to life in Taradise!

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

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

Booked a last minute deal - 5 pax.
