Attraction details
Type: Tours, Adventure
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.

Two days ago, my husband and I took a helicopter flight that included a snow landing on the Old Woman Range with Heliview as my birthday treat. It was a memorable experience that I would definitely repeat. Jolanda and Richard, the operators, along with their daughter, Safi, made the service extraordinary and very personable. In fact, it was our first... More

Went up in the helicopter this morning with the heliview guys to go heli biking! Never mountain biked before and wasn't pressured to push myself or anything and by the end I'd like to think I was flying! Really great experience and would definitely do it again!

We had a lovely family trip last weekend. Yolanda and Richard were very hospitable and the helicopter was very comfortable. Richard was able to tell us lots of interesting facts about the local environment and the locals. They were able to accommodate the changes in the weather and come up with an alternative plan which was fantastic. We went to... More

Along with our friends we had an awesome Heliview experience. Jolanda and Richard were very friendly and communicated with us before our trip really well. We had to postpone our trip to the following day due to weather and even then the cloud came over and delayed it for an hour or so. Jolanda recommended we went for a coffee... More

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
