Richard and Jolanda Foale from Heliview Flights invite you to take to the skies over Central Otago, near Queenstown. 5 reasons we make your holiday awesome * Heliview Flights - a family business with the personal touch; we spend more time with you, making your trip special * Cromwell has the best flying weather in New Zealand, with only 400mm of rain per annum! * Dramatic landscapes, majestic vistas or a stunning sunset all from our luxury 7-seater helicopter * Your pilot Richard has extensive experience (over 30 years) including search & rescue, police, corporate and UK Army AirCorps * Experience Cromwell: an authentic, gentler pace, only a 45 minute drive from bustling Queenstown, NZ's adventure capital Blending a luxury helicopter, personalised service, friendly staff and the stunning Central Otago landscape, family-owned Heliview Flights offers a range of scenic helicopter flights and heli-biking trips (guided and self-ride). From their base at Cromwell Racecourse Airfield, flights take in the majestic vista of the surrounding area and Southern Alps.

Great experience, not to be missed, Jolanda was a great host. Everything went like clockwork, smooth flight up to landing area, Richard the pilot gave us a good commentary during flight, and hot chocolate once we landed. This is an experience you shouldn't miss.

If you are hiring a car, it is very easy to find helliview. It will however take you about 1 hour to drive to Cromwell. Its a stunning drive.
