We as a family of 4 did a heli tour up to see snow. The weather in the morning was not that great but Yolanda and Richard were extremely accommodating and determined to get us our experience so we waited out the low cloud. We eventually got up and flying and had a great experience. Richard is a fab pilot and my 7 and 12 year old loved it. As did my fiancé getting the front seat on the return journey. The hot chocolate prepared by Yolanda was a great touch. Make sure you get the photos package. Richard takes a great shot and we treasure the family pics he took. Thanks you so much team for a memory that will last a life time.

I took my 17 year old son on a flight with Alpine Landing last week. It was so amazing, a once of a lifetime experience we will both cherish. Yolanda was so beautiful and friendly and Richard is a great pilot. I felt so safe the entire trip. His commentary and knowledge of the region was such an added bonus to the flight. Landing on the mountain with breathtaking views and being served the most beautiful creamy hot chocolate brought tears to my eyes. If you are looking for something to do around Queenstown, make sure to pay Yolanda and Richard a visit. Thank you to the both of you, this was the highlight to my trip to Queenstown.

We popped in on the off chance that there would be a flight to go on that afternoon. Unfortunately there wasn't, but Jolanda promised to phone us if an opportunity came up. Sure enough, the next morning she phoned saying there was still nothing available. But soon after that she phoned to say Yes, we could go! A lovely family run business. Jolanda was very welcoming and friendly and Richard was a great pilot. Our flight was incredible. Richard provided an excellent commentary throughout the flight. The landing on the mountain was stunning! Hot chocolate warmed our cold hands. Enough time to take in the scenery and snap some photos. Richard also took photos of us which we were able to purchase on a USB when we left. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and definitely recommend to all!

Fantastic experience!!! Our 6yr old enjoyed herself, it was her first helicopter flight. Awesome scenery and hot chocolate upon snow landing. Video footage purchased at the end was terrific, it was like going on the flight again. Commentary was really informative and covered lots of different aspects of the region. Safety always in mind of Peter and Yolanda.
