Paul and Kirsty gave our family a wonderful experience celebrating my sister's 50th birthday. Being wheelchair bound, she needed some additional help, and they went out of their way to be attentive and assist in any way possible. Thoroughly nice people to deal with. Appreciated your kindness, good humour, clear communication and technical competence. Thank you! You have our unreserved recommendation!

Sensational Service and Exceptional Piloting by Paul!

The team at Highland Helicopters helped execute one of the best marriage proposals ever down to the finest detail, this past Valentines day. The sights and views were epic and the local knowledge by Paul and his Wife Kirsty were fantastic!
Thanks again for such a great event guys!

This flight to Fluers for lunch was then best gift ever!!! Our daughter surprised us with this from our cruise ship. Pilot was amazing and gave us a tour of the coast too! This was a must when you are in New Zealand

A once in a life time visit from to Dunedin via a cruise ship putting us the closest we would every be to each lunch at the foodie’s favorite Fleurs Place in Moeraki - just one problem... how to get there and back fast?

Enter Paul and Kristy from Highlands Helicopters. Super nice, friendly and easy to communicate with. Payment was a bit tricky but they solved it with a bit of trust on both sides. Good, honest, people still exist!

They also helped us with transport to the hanger and even set everything up with Fleur for our lunch! We landed like rock stars and ate the most unbelievable fish, shellfish, pate, bread, and even Mac and cheese for the little one!

The flight was magnificent and so memorable! Safe, comfortable, informative, and just perfect.

Would recommend Highland and The trip to Fleurs to anyone!!

Like many things in life, biggest is seldom best. Highland are a mid-sized business with enough resource to be flexible - but not so large that they've lost the personal touch. The perfect choice even for nervous fliers, you'll feel safe, comfortable and well cared for from the time you arrive until the time you leave with a huge smile across you're face.

If you're looking for a really special way to mark a significant occasion do what I did. Book someone special in for flight instruction, the instructors are skilled, the Cabri dual control machines have some significant safety features and the smiles are guaranteed!!
