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.

Yolande is an absolute delight in organising the itinerary and Richard is a superb pilot full of information of the area which is spectacular. The helicopter was very new and vision was amazing.

This was a stunning flight around Cromwell , over Highlands Motorsport track and up the Kawarau and Nevis rivers. We then landed on the snow on the Old Woman Range , enjoying a hot chocolate while taking in the views all the way to Mt Cook ! It was a fantastic flight, with awesome service and commentary by Richard and... More

Extremely happy with this whole experience. Jolanda was committed to making sure we had the best flying day possible in between bad weather days, with excellent communication and updates on traffic and road closures/openings after two pile ups on the road to Cromwell from Qtn. Mission impossible became absolutely possible!! Richard is an ace pilot and on this windy day... More

We couldn't have picked a better day for flying - freezing cold, but clear blue skies and snow absolutely everywhere! And the flight was superb. And very good value, when compared with other helicopter flights in the area. Well done, guys!
