North Shore Helicopter Training established in 1996, has a proud history of training hundreds of both private, commercial and instructional pilots from all walks of life from our base at North Shore Airfield in Auckland.

The intention has always been to train pilots in a fun, informative and innovative manner with safety being the number one priority.

Our students come from completely varying backgrounds and cultures but have a common goal of achieving their dreams and learning how to fly these great machines.

Recently to ensure we are at the forefront of training great pilots, we gained New Zealand Qualification Authority (NZQA) registration to offer diplomas to levels 5 & 6, plus we are fully certified as a Part 141 Training Organisation by the Civil Aviation Authority.

At Orbit Helicopters we believe there are parts of New Zealand that will quite literally leave you breathless - natural beauty so amazing and locations so remote that few have gone there. Orbit Helicopters would like you to be a part of this experience.

We provide individually tailored flight tours to some of the most picturesque locations in New Zealand. Our personal and intimate service can cater to both individual and group demands. We have put together a selection of flights, tours and adventures for you to choose from, but our philosophy has always been to say "yes" if you want to do something different. We know all the spots to go to, and naturally we have access to a wide range of VIP helicopters to match your itinerary and your discerning needs.

Our pilots have thousands of hours of flying experience and hold a high regard for safety and a fine attention to detail. They are selected for their passion, enthusiasm and their desire to share what they believe to be the most beautiful place on earth.

We look forward to taking you on more than a journey....an experience of a lifetime!
