Have had this on my bucket list and it was even more than I could possibly imagine! The experience was something else and highly recommend it to anyone thinking of doing this. Thanks to Jonno, awesome instructor, look forward to do this again.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed being at the controls of the helicopter and experiencing what its like to operate these machines. We also offer the helicopter trial flights at our Kaikoura Helicopters in a bigger helicopter.. Another bucket list item to tick off maybe? #gardencityhelicopters

most enjoyable, starting from the briefing to take off and the flight, the highlight was the tour of the facilities and the understanding of the training, the interaction with other services, and to witness preparation and the organization of emergency services. our family left with a greater understanding, of the organization that our farm business supports, by annual subscription. Thank you and, Regards Peter Withell,on behalf of Raywell Farm Ltd.

Thank you Peter for your review. You not only got a great view over the lovely Christchurch, you also got to see and hear about how we operate whilst touring our base. Thank you for your support for the last 5 years to the Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust, the wonderful community fundraising organization behind the rescue helicopters. #gchaviation #gardencityhelicopters

Had an absolutely fabulous day on the Between the Wines tour with friends. The helicopter ride there and back is a bonus as you take in the beautiful landscape of Canterbury and also Christchurch city. Our awesome pilot Jono was very knowledgeable in pointing out sites and points of interest and with a sense of humour to boot. The 5 wineries each had something different to offer and not to mention the delicious wines. Of course you feel quite special arriving at each winery by helicopter. Cant recommend this tour highly enough. Gather together some family or friends and do it. You wont be disappointed. Thanks GCH and Jono for a great day. Kura

Thank you to the fantastic team at GCH. I had been meaning to do a trial flight for a while and finally got around to doing it this year. These guys were brilliant. The communications, booking process, and the flight itself... awesome experience, I'm hooked.

Thank you for your review. Being at the controls of a helicopter is an thrilling experience. Feeling and seeing what its like to operate the machine. We also operate the YouFly trial flight from our Kaikoura Helicopters in a bigger machine, should you want to give that a go. #gchaviation #gardencityhelicopters #kaikourahelicopters

Amazing day, right from the start with the tour over Christchurch city. The pilot, Johno, talked about the city, wineries and the region with a lot of knowledge which made it an interesting day. Such an awesome way to do the wineries. Definitely a bucket list item ticked off for us.
