This was an unplanned trip but so glad we did it. An unbelievable experience and Ken the pilot was very friendly, knowledgeable and piloted the chopper beautifully. My wife and I were blown away by the scenery over the glaciers and alps. This is a trip of a lifetime and we highly recommend it. Just a tip, take the 40 minute trip its certainly worth it. Thanks Ken and Kevin. Ross and Sandra, Taupo

Relaxed and super friendly team. We took the full Mt Cook, Franz, Fox and Tasman glacier flight. Pilot Ken was very knowledgeable and informative. Seeing the catchment basin for the glaciers at the top is an experience we will never forget and is something if given the chance everyone should do. Even the location of the operation is pretty spectacular next to the ice blue river. We will be back again.

We had the full Aoraki/Mt Cook and glacier landing experience for the longest, awe inspiring and best value flight in the area. Very welcoming, informal and professional hosts, manager father Kevin and pilot son Josh who also educates throughout the trip. Highly recommended!

Kevin was super easy to deal with and very helpful with fitting me in with some rafters for a solo tahr hunt. Talked on the Monday and arrived in Whataroa Wednesday afternoon, in the bush Thursday morning. Definitely a few animals around if you hunt hard enough. Definitely recommend if getting the run around from others. Will be back.
