Blending a luxury helicopter, personalised service, friendly staff and the stunning Central Otago landscape, family-owned Heliview Flights offers a range of scenic helicopter flights and heli-biking trips (guided and self-ride). From their base at Cromwell Racecourse Airfield, flights take in the majestic vista of the surrounding area and Southern Alps. Note: we used to be in New Plymouth, which old reviews reflect, but it's the same people and helicopter as before, so expect the same high standards, combined with new scenery.

Jolanda & Richard simply provide one of the most exhilarating and thrilling experiences to be found in Cromwell. From initial contact to completion of flight their personal touch & professional standards were exemplary. The flight was on a wonderfully clear day with blue skies, Jolanda talked through all appropriate safety issues and we were escorted to the helicopter where Richard... More

Cromwell / Pisa Range snow landing. There are really two parts to the story in my case. A lot of it is to do with organising the trip - working around the fact that I'm close to the upper limit of height and technically too heavy, and also a very small window of opportunity in our travels that could easily...

This was an absolute amazing experience, defiantly something I would do again in a heartbeat! We flew to the top of Mount Pisa, over the Cromwell Basin, and the views were absolutely breathtaking! Bring some gloves because it gets very cold (especially with the winds) up on the peak!

This was the best experience ever. It is the first time for my hubby to be in a helicopter and he is hooked. Jolanda and Richard are fantastic, both with knowledge and exceptional service. We originally booked to fly just around Cromwell but got the opportunity to upgrade and land in this snow. This is a must-do to get a... More

We took the flight today and had fantastic clear weather and enjoyed the views all the way to the snow landing. Two of our party had not seen snow before, so landing on thick fluffy snow then walking out on it on top of the world was wonderful. Great customer service from booking until the end of the trip by... More

This was the first time for myself and my partner in a helicopter and we couldn't have chosen a better place or nicer people. Jolanda was lovely and made it so easy from the booking through to after the flight. We had great weather and lots of snow on the mountain so it looked magical. I can't say enough about... More

We took the flight to the top of Mount Jackson. The pilot pointed out many interesting things on our trip. He dropped us at the top of the Jackson, served hot chocolate, we had plenty of time for snow ball fights, exploring and photos. Truly top notch from booking to end of flight. Don't miss out on the video and... More

This was my favourite booking we made on our holiday - so glad we booked this tour. The day we originally booked for the weather was not ideal for flying so we rescheduled and I am so glad we did.

Thank you for your wonderful feedback. It's great to hear you enjoyed our package with Goldfields Jet: a Cromwell Basin flight with alpine landing, and a thrilling 45 minute jet boat ride through the Kawarau Gorge. We hope to welcome you on board again some day. Kind regards Richard & Jolanda Foale Heliview Flights More
