Introductory Helicopter Flight

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly over some of the most breathtaking scenery on the planet? Now you can!

Either as a present to a friend or as a treat to yourself, we can now make those dreams a reality.

Our range of introductory flights opens up the magical world of flying, where you have a go and actually fly the helicopter! You will be amazed at the awesome view whilst flying free as a bird over the stunning north Auckland beaches and fabulous forests and you’ll wonder why it’s taken you so long to have a go at this unforgettable experience.

You will be in the safe and capable hands of your instructor who will demonstrate each control, when you’re ready, it’s your turn. It will either be a once in a lifetime opportunity, or you will catch the helicopter bug and be back for more. Either way, this will be the most fun you have had whilst keeping your clothes on!!

With a briefing before you go, your 30 ($295) or 60 minutes ($590) flight in the helicopter, your instructor will give you a go at each of the controls whilst flying over local area which will accord you views over the greater Auckland region and Hauraki Gulf. If time permits they may demonstrate some of the unique advantages of the helicopter but the whole aim is to give the student as much a go as possible.

All in all, a truly memorable experience that will never be forgotten and one we hope you may want to pursue at a later date.
