we're married couple from Prague and we're planning a trip to New Zealand. I've found an interesting web site http://www.heliview.co.nz and asked them if they are able to arrange a round trip from New Plymouth to Ruapehu: New Plymouth - Mount Taranaki - Ruapehu - Tongariro - Whangamomona - New Plymouth.
The date would be Tue, Nov 27th, 2012. We should arrive to New Plymouth between 9:00 and 10:00 on a flight from Wellington.
Here's the answer I've received:
"Yes we can fly your requested route. Flight time would be 1.8hrs which would cost NZ$3,600.00. We could carry up to 5 passengers on the flight and would suggest a stop over in Ohakune, and if required a 2nd stop in Whangamomona. So plan on being away from New Plymouth for around 4 hours."
I'd be glad if I can find 3 people to share that adventure with us since NZ$3,600.00 is a bit expensive for just 2 people...
P.S. Please, excuse me for my poor English, it's not my native language.
