Our early morning scheduled flight was cancelled due to clouds, but as we returned from our hike to see Rob Roy Glacier, we stopped in to see if any flights were available. Other scheduled flights were cancelled, but since it was sunny and beautiful locally, the staff and pilot said they would be happy to get us in the air. Tim was a terrific pilot and we had an amazing time for our first helicopter flight. We were stunned by the landing at altitude between two glaciers where we could get out and take in the out-of-this-world location. I'm sure they can't make up flights like this most of the time, but they certainly wanted to satisfy our quest this time ! I recommend making the short drive to Aspiring Helicopters and you'll be pleased.

From beginning to end was faultless, Michelle Slater the Hostess did an outstanding job at preparing us (family of 4) for the flight, what a delightful person she is,a perfect role model, nothing was to difficult for her & Michelle made us feel very special indeed. As if that was not enough! we then met our pilot Tim, who also was superb at his job, clearly very capable, personable & his passion shone through. Fabulous scenery & landing on the snow was a great thrill, truly a must do for everyone. A highly recommended experience.
