We decided to book the cheapest option to the Remarkables, but were incredibly lucky to be upgraded to a glacier flight to Skippers. Ben our pilot was great fun and very knowledgeable about the...

Fantastic day out, we did the Flight to Milford sound, cruise then land on the snowfield on the way home. BEN the pilot was very informative and made the Flight fun and interesting. First time helicopter flight first time snow and the views and immense spectacle of Milford Sound is amazing. Highly recommended!!!!

We did a 35min helicopter flight over Queenstown landing on Cecil Peak, the flight was amazing, scenery stunning. We found the entire experience from pick up to drop off smooth and friendly. The pilot was reassuring and very informative throughout. Would definitely use this company again.

Had a wonderful trip (extended Milford flight) on a blue bird day. Our pilot Ben ticked all the boxes, very professional, great commentary and even was happy to help out with our mandatory photos. Whilst Milford Sound was spectacular, our landing on a snow covered glacier was even more memorable. Our initial flight date was delayed due to weather (as... More

Hi Monttheman, Yes the Milford Sound extended flight is one of the best Helicopter experiences combining many different environments with short amount of time. In Fiordland inc Milford Sound the weather does change frequently but glad you managed to get out and fly with us. Ben is a popular choice with customers and is very good taking time to explain...
