We booked a trial flight for 26 Aug 2022 morning. Unfortunately on that day, the weather was not good (cloudy with rain) so we had to reschedule to 5 Sep afternoon.
On 5 Sep afternoon, after our briefing, the weather suddenly turned bad and once again, we had to push back the flight, this time to 7 Sep morning.
On 7 Sep morning, we were finally able to fly and the experience is phenomenal. Immediately after that, we quickly made our way to the airport to catch our flight back home.
We are greatly appreciative of Juliet, our pilot, who went out of her way to accommodate our schedule, even having to reschedule her own commitments in the process. She also gave us a brief tour of the place and we got to know many of the friendly staff there. Looking at the immaculate state of the helicopters, we know staff takes pride in their work.
We like to thank the other pilot, Jon, as well, for his humour and for making the flight interesting.
We also like to thank Geoff, who was really helpful in liaising with us and had given us great tips on travelling in the South Island.
Friendly, professional and dependable staff.
