Helicopter Trial Flights

Experience The Thrill Of Helicopter Trial Flights

Do you have a passion for flying a helicopter? Look no further than our helicopter trial flights, where you can experience the thrill of flying first-hand!

Our trial flights are the perfect way to kickstart your flying adventure. Unlike most trial flights, we offer a unique “bring a friend” policy for free, so you can share the experience with someone special.

Our 4 seat helicopter is equipped with enhanced safety measures, including keeping one seat free. With the assistance of our highly experienced instructor, you’ll have the opportunity to take control of the aircraft and test your skills.

Even if you have no prior experience, our step-by-step guidance will help you navigate the controls with ease. And any flying time you accumulate during the trial flight can be used towards obtaining your license if you choose to continue with flight training.

But it’s not just about flying. Our flights offer breathtaking views of Tauranga and its surroundings. You’ll enjoy unobstructed views of the Bay of Plenty, Tauranga Harbour, Matakana Island, and the majestic Mount “or Mauao” – all from a bird’s eye view.

And for memories that last a lifetime, we offer the option to capture your experience through photos.

Ready to make your dream of flying a helicopter a reality? Contact us today to book your helicopter trial flight and experience the thrill of the skies!

Flying around Tauranga – with a birds eye view is an awesome experience.

From the comfort of your seat, you’ll enjoy unobstructed views of the Bay of Plenty and Tauranga Harbour, Matakana Island and the extinct volcano of the Mount “or Mauao”.

We can snap some photos of your experience or when you are not at the controls, can grab some photos yourself.

There really is no better place to fly.
