Owner description: OVER THE TOP – more than a helicopter flight. With the latest helicopters available, our interpretive excursions take you over Queenstown, Milford & the Fiords of southern New Zealand. We shut down the helicopter on all of our landings to enjoy quiet beauty of this incredible part of the world. Fly with Over The Top to experience alpine glaciers & remote lakes with gourmet picnics, hiking, boating, extreme golfing, wine tours, fly fishing or skiing. Our selection of relaxed experiences distils the essence of New Zealand’s most dramatic scenery whilst immersing you in the natural history of the area. Meet, friends of ours, local photographers, high country farmers, wine makers, skippers all of whom are delighted to share their expertise & friendliness. Safety is paramount & continued investment has seen our fleet grow to include the Eurocopter EC130, the worlds most advanced flight seeing helicopter & the 9 seater BK117, Queenstown's largest & only twin engine Cat A helicopter.

Great flight to Milford Sound. I felt safe at all times. Pilot was responsible and decided on an alternative landing site when weather conditions deteriorated.
Communication with the pilot over headphones was clear commentary on the geography

Thank 250KevinW
