''ONE OF THE BEST''
This was one of the best scenic heli tours I have been on, a remarkable changing landscape keeps you fixated on the window. From the lush pastures with native animals and winding rivers to the high grounds of the glaciers and snow-capped mount and then there was that view of Mt Cook WOW above the clouds with the sunshine and the snow-capped ridge of cook gleaming in the sunlight....... spectacular. Their office is right beside highway6 at Haast, staff are very friendly & helpful and our pilot Scott was a great guy, helpful and informative and more importantly relaxed ...... many thanks Scott
"Great flight "
I had a wonderful flight through the mountains, through the valleys, landed by the lakes saw the wildlife. Worth every dollar it was a great experience and as the only helicopter in the area, I definitely got to see more.
"Affordable and very friendly Helicopter service”
We were staying at the campground and I surprised my partner by buying her a cheap Helicopter ride.It flew in and parked near our campsite. Scott the pilot was very nice and friendly and talked to me about a hunting trip that I could do on a reasonably cheap budget. My partner flew that day on an unforgettable experience as the sun was setting. I flew in the next day up the Thomas River to stay at the doc hut and shot a spiker deer the next morning right where Scott said it would be. Great trip to feed the family and have the time of my life.

Thank you so much for showing us a slice of your backyard! Could've flown all day along that coastline! Will be back for dolphin spotting ;) Great pilot & crew - couldn't recommend more. Cheers!

"'Simply the Best'"
We stayed in Haast en route from Wanaka to Franz Josef. On the morning of our departure we decided to see what Haast Heliservices had to offer. We were very warmly greeted and the options were clearly explained to us. We fancied a glacier flight but we didn't want the 'industrial' scale operations found for Fox and Franz Josef. What we got was an extraordinary, memorable and wonderful experience. My wife and I flew with pilot Scott in the smaller of the two modern aircraft that are on offer. Our trip high above the Haast Pass gave superb views of Mt. Cook and Mt. Tasman but stunning close up views of the pristine glaciers atop Mt. Dechen. Scott flew us expertly and with great local expertise and knowledge. The whole experience felt personal and bespoke in an area where glacier flights are an industry in themselves. I urge anyone considering glacier flights in this part of New Zealand to look beyond the highly publicized Fox and Franz Josef options. Visit these guys in Haast because they are SPECIAL!! No recommendation is high enough and we came away just thrilled by our time above this World Heritage Area in the company of Scott. What a fantastic hour we had!!
