Solid outfit, good equipment and an excellent team. Out Pilot, Adam, provided a great experience and my "rotary wing shy" wife ended up really enjoying the experience.

Amazing views of around Wellington from a completely different perspective. Dai was very friendly and made you feel very relaxed and comfortable. Was a few bumps as you’d expect from Windy welly but overall a smooth ride.

Only thing was my overwhelming feeling of sickness and disappointment when I got home and found a Grab one deal for champagne, brunch and the flight for two people for much cheaper than what I had paid - gutted!

My husband booked a special flight for a bday gift for me and my two eldest daughters and some friends. He especially organised pick up and drop off from our rural property. The whole experience was just incredible. Flying up transmission gully and down along coast to the south where we landed and saw the seals then flew back over Eastbourne and the Belmont hills. Our pilot gave us a great commentary and made us all feel very special. Beats magazines and hand cream as a bday present any day. Thanks so much for making my first helicopter ride such a memorable one

I have wanted to do a helicopter ride for decades and came close the last time we were in Wellington about 7 years ago. At the time, my partner did not want to join me, so I decided not to go alone.

This time, my brother and sister-in-law bought us gift certificates for two people as a thank you gift for paying their way for this trip. Finally, I was going to be able to make a dream come true.

Prior to going out to the helicopter, we had a briefing on safety and received life jackets for the over water part of the tour. Our pilot was Andy was so kind and caring, making sure each of us was using our multiple seat belts properly before we took off. None of us seemed to need any calming, but his calm nature could soothe anyone who may have had apprehension.

What Andy did that I really appreciated is he suggested two of us who were in the second row move up front on the way back from the coast.

This was one of the great experiences of my life and having traveled to 74 countries, I have had some really great experiences.

If this is on your bucket list, these are the people to help you check it off.

A wonderful combination of great Wellington weather, professional and friendly service, a classy helicopter, and superb views of Wellington City and the Southern coast from above - an unbeatable experience!!! Preparation for the flight involved careful well paced explanation of safety procedures which instilled confidence in the pilot and ground crew. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed the flight and highly recommend it to others. Thanks you staff at GCH Aviation Wellington Helicopters.
