We took the 15 minute helicopter tour around Auckland and enjoyed a 3-course meal in their restaurant. We very much enjoyed both experiences. The company and pilot were very professional and seeing Auckland from that perspective was amazing.

We would highly recommend this experience to others.

For my birthday on Tuesday this week my darling wife took me on a helicopter ride that covered all of Auckland's volcanic cones.

It was done under a ruse as she led me to believe that we were cycling to mechanics bay for a celebratory glass of champagne.

This all added to the excitement as I have been hankering for go on a chopper ride for years.

Our pilot was Cameron who is a charming and very professional aviator.

He made us feel completely safe and made us laugh with a steady banter of one liners interspersed with what is a deep knowledge of the geology of Auckland.

I loved the experience and am planning my next ride.

I would highly recommend Inflite and Cameron as your pilot

Booked a special 21st for my daughter with Scott at Inflite and celebrated it today. A small hiccup (not their fault) meant we could not take off from downtown Auckland but had to take a taxi to the North Shore (organised by them) which actually meant a longer and more scenic flight out to Waiheke Island (awesome!!) were we went zip-lining with EcoZip Adventures - totally recommend - then had an amazing lunch at the Mudbrick Vineyards. Taxi was organised to the vineyard and from there to the ferry as well as the tickets back. Everything was so easy and stress free. Thanks guys, my daughter was over the moon.

I went on a 20 minute morning flight around Auckland in April. It was a great way to see the city and its surrounds in a relatively short period of time. The pilot, Tom, was excellent and pointed out all the landmarks to those who weren’t familiar with Auckland. He also flew us over our home in St Heliers when he found out that 4 of the passengers lived in that area. I would thoroughly recommend the Inflite experience for overseas visitors and locals.

You can’t go past this company as a terrific option for Helicopters around Auckland, and also Mt Cook, Fox and Franz Joseph Glacier area. Frankly I made a boo-boo with the flight bookings and ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time. On top of that the weather set in and made our plans even more impossible. In comes Manager Lisa! - after 4 or 5 phone calls working around pilot schedules and incoming cloud that day, plus a storm the next Lisa went out of her way to accommodates us.

Lisa just made it happen, we flew on each side of that storm and had a terrific time. The pilots are confident and experienced, really friendly and we felt like we were safe in good hands at all times. They even ran us from the Mt Cook airport The Hermitage hotel complimentary. A quick mention to Yordan in Auckland office too who was also so friendly, professional and accommodating when we flew there.

We will definitely use InFlight Charters again!

This was a surprise evening out for my wife.

We arrived at Mikano and were warmly greeted and given pre-flight cocktails. All very relaxed. Once the time came for the flight, we went downstairs to the Inflite terminal for our safety briefing.

We were the only two passengers, so it felt like we had our own private helicopter.

We told our pilot that we were going on a cruise the next day and that our ship was in port. So, he flew us right over the ship, so we could get some photo shots.

Our flight took us over some stunning scenery, with a great commentary from the pilot.

After the flight, we went back to Mikano, for a really lovely dinner.

All in all, an unforgettable experience.

This was an incredible experience. We booked a Waiheke Island package with Inflite. A scenic flight out to Cable Bay Wines on the island for a three course lunch, a taxi from the winery down to the ferry, and the return ferry tickets to Auckland - all organised by Inflite - all completely seamless. The team at Inflite are brilliant, highly professional, immaculately presented, polite and very friendly.

This is a new restaurant on the St Lucie River. The menu is imaginative and the food was attractive and tasty. The service was very good and the view is wonderful. I was a bit disappointed in our cocktails. My gin and tonic seemed to be minus the gin and my yummy espresso martini was tiny. It came in a small coupe glass and was not filled. I will try this place again but maybe I will get a beer.

For the past two weeks, I was planning to surprise a very sick friend with a helicopter tour. After multiple phone calls with two different Inflite employees prior the D-day to make this dream come true in the most magical way, I had the huge disappointment to see my flight cancelled only few hours before the flight due to poor organisation on their end. Because of the late notice, no other alternative were possible with any other helicopter company in Auckland. Inflite turned what was meant to be a memorable day into a real disaster and no helicopter tour. I would not recommend this company for the lack of professionalism and empathy. Inflite, it is time to lift your game!
