Type: Helicopter tours, Sightseeing Tours
Owner description: 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.

Loved our first Helicopter Flight with Heliview. Awesome staff that have a real passion for what they do! Would highly recommend them! We had a perfect afternoon! It was great getting the history of the area as we flew over it. Thanks Heliview!

Love love loved my first Helicopter experience thanks to the awesome staff at Heliview. Could not recommend this experience more if you want to truly see over Cromwell. We had quite a windy day and for my first flight I was a little nervous but the whole experience I ended up feeling totally relaxed with such a competent pilot and... More

Hi Charlotte. Thanks a lot for your review :). We pride ourselves in looking after our customers and work hard at making everyone feel at ease - even when the wind has a bit of a different idea sometimes. But rest assured, we postpone our flights if it becomes too uncomfortable. We can fly in a lot worse conditions than... More

As this was a surprise as a birthday gift I only heard later the lengths that Jolanda and my wife went to to work around a tight time frame and inclement weather to ensure that I had a great time and wonderful flight. A generous tour, very quiet helicopter and even a slight deviation to ensure I got a view... More

Barry, you are very welcome! It's always a pleasure to work with our clients' specific travel dates and choose the best weather whenever possible. And an extra perk when it all comes together so nicely, albeit on the last available morning! Happy birthday again :). More

Hamshaq, sorry to hear about your first attempt to go on a helicopter tour :(. We had no idea this had happened to you and just looked after you as we would with anyone's enquiry. Yay for coming out tops :). Hopefully we'll be able to welcome you on another flight sometime soon :). Jolanda and Richard More

Thanks to Jolanda and Richard at Heliview and also Roger at Ladybird Winery for a fantastic experience. Very professional, yet flexible, fun and relaxed. We did the flight and lunch, very well put together, seamless transition between the two businesses and we were treated so well by both. We would highly recommend to anyone considering this option, or any other... More

86Aurora, we love the Ladybird Hill Heli-Dine trip as well! It's a great day out flying over the stunning Central Otago landscape (Cromwell Basin, Dunstan Mountains, St Bathans, Hawkdun Range, Omarama, Clay Cliffs, Lindis Pass, Pisa Range) and landing at NZ's highest winery. Being greeted by the owner, wine tasting, salmon fishing, wandering around the vineyard, enjoying a two course... More

Thoroughly enjoyable time. Neither of us have been in a helicopter before, and I was a little nervous, but it felt very safe. The view was fantastic, and Richard's commentary was informative, and it was great to land on the Pisa Range and have a walk around. Thanks so much Richard, Jolanda and Matt for a great experience.

My wife and I had a great flight in fantastic weather and a landing on the Pisa range. Helicopters don't have the turbulence associated with fixed wing craft. Great service and informed commentary by Richard (but not 'non-stop!). Would thoroughly recommend their operation and a must-do in the Cromwell area. Tekapobruce

Fantastic service, professional and extremely well organised operation. Great value for money with unique access through special parts of the Cromwell mountain ranges. I would highly recommend the mountain bike trip down mt Pisa and Old Woman range if you love Epic scenery fast and flowing descents. We "self guided" to Heliviews' directions and found it extremely easy. Heliviews bikes... More

Epic review! Thanks :). You know you're doing something right when the riders come back from their heli-bike so hyped up that they immediately go again on another ride! We'll work on more trails for your next visit :). See you again soon! Jolanda and Richard More
